University of Akron Night at the Akron Aeros game will feature and extra dose of sweater vest this season.

The AA affiliate of the Cleveland Indians announced it will be giving away Jim Tressel bobblehead dolls to the first 1,000 fans as part of their University of Akron Night promotion this Saturday. Akron students also have the opportunity to receive discounted tickets for the game, making it a win-win for any Zips looking to secure a Tressel bobblehead on the cheap.

The former Ohio State head coach is currently serving as Akron's vice president of strategic management. While Tressel has no specific ties to the Aeros, the former Akron graduate assistant has become a popular figure around the community since stepping down from his position with the Buckeyes.
