Looking for a free ticket to this weekend's game between Tennessee and Florida in Gainesville? Well, there's one available to you if you happen to meet a few requirements. 

A Florida man posted an ad on Craigslist offering a free ticket to the game, though there is a bit of a catch. From the ad:

My step-daughter's date backed out (his loss, your gain) for the game...

1 Free ticket for the Tennessee-Florida Football game this Saturday (cost to me, $150) on the 40 for the right gentleman. You must be an attractive, professional, single well educated gentleman, with a good sense of humor, 25-33. You also must not be threatened by an attractive, professional, single well educated lady, (as she is). If you do not qualify, please pass this ad to a friend.

The fine print: I lied! (Sorry...not totally free). Your cost will be a modest dinner, drinks and delightful conversation with her before or after the game.

The ad also states that being a Tennessee fan is not a requirement, but that it's "highly desirable." 

The seats are pretty decent too, as they're on the visitor's sideline in the nineteenth row between the forty yard lines. So, honestly, between the free ticket and the date this is a pretty hard deal to pass up if you're a single guy who meets the requirements.

Maybe you'll fall in love and have a great story to tell your kids one day.

If you're interested you better act fast, as the deadline to apply for this date is midnight Eastern on Wednesday. The winner will be announced on Thursday.

Good luck, fellas.
