The Sweepstakes will begin on or about 6:00 am on August 1st, 2017 and ends on or about 11:59pm on August 24th, 2017 (the “Sweepstakes Period”). Sponsor will be the official timekeeper for the Sweepstakes. Twenty-three (23) Finalists will be chosen from 960 The Ref callers between August 1st, 2015 and August 24th, 2017.     To enter, listen to 960 The Ref radio broadcast (the “Show”) from 4-7pm each weekday during the Sweepstakes Period. Sponsor will announce the cue to call. When you hear the announcement, call Sponsor’s Sweepstakes Line 706-549-6000 to try to be the designated caller. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, the designated person to call Sponsor’s Sweepstakes Line, as solely determined by Sponsor, will become a Finalist.    To qualify as a Finalist, (a) you must be listening to 960 The Ref at the time the announcement is broadcast; (b) you must be declared by Sponsor to be designated person to call Sponsor’s Sweepstakes Line at 706-549-6000 and (c) you must comply with all other terms and conditions of these Official Rules. Telephone calls will be taken by Sweepstakes operators in the order they are received, and the operators will count the number of calls received after each on-air Sweepstakes announcement to determine designated caller. The determinations of Sponsor and Sweepstakes operators will be final and binding in all respects.    Maximum One entry per person and per mailing address during the Sweepstakes Period.   The use of multiple identities and/or accounts is prohibited, and any attempt to obtain more than the stated number of entries will void that participant’s entries and may result in participant’s disqualification. Incomplete, forged, altered, automated, mechanically-reproduced, lost, late, misdirected, garbled or illegible entries will be disqualified Sponsor will not be responsible for failure to receive entries due to transmission failures or technical failures of any kind, including, without limitation, malfunctioning of any network, hardware or software, whether originating with sender, Sponsor, or Sponsor’s Sweepstakes application service provider. In the event of a dispute, all online entries will be deemed to have been submitted by the owner of the ISP account from which they were sent, provided that such person satisfies all other Sweepstakes eligibility requirements. For these purposes, an ISP account holder shall mean the natural person assigned to such ISP account by the Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning ISP addresses for the domain associated with such ISP account.    Listeners accessing Sponsor’s radio station audio via IP connections like website-based streaming or mobile devices are welcome to enter. However, Sponsor cannot be responsible for delays in electronic transmission of station audio to IP devices. By entering this Sweepstakes, listeners acknowledge and agree to this specific provision of these Official Rules. In addition, Sponsor will not be responsible for loss of service to the Sweepstakes Line or for a participant’s failure to reach the Sweepstakes Line due to malfunction of any network or system, congestion, any technical or human error, failures or malfunctions of any kind, including the congestion, overload, busy signals, or any other factor that may prevent an individual from completing his/her phone call. In the event of interruption of power or telephone service to Sponsor during a call-in period of the Sweepstakes prior to accepting the caller, or a change in programming that results in Sponsor’s inability to air a call-in opportunity, Sponsor will not replay the affected call-in opportunity and the number of Finalists opportunities awarded in this Sweepstakes will be reduced accordingly. If a caller is ineligible, or fails to comply with any term of condition of these Official Rules, that caller will be disqualified and no Finalist will be selected during that call-in period.   Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entries by persons who submit false or misleading entry information or who Sponsor determines to be tampering with or abusing any aspect of the Sweepstakes.     Winner Selection and Odds.   On or about November 27th, 2017 Sponsor will select one (1) potential Grand Prize winner if a finalist is determined to be the sole finalist who has not yet picked the outcome of two (2) games wrong is weeks prior. Odds of becoming a Finalist depend on the number of eligible participants; odds of a Finalist winning, 1 in 23.   Each week during the promotional period all twenty-three (23) finalists will have a list of games on 960theref.com to choose from. All finalists will pick one team they think will win (no point spread) each week from the games provided on the website. Finalists may pick a team (winner) only one time during the promotional period and must pick a new team each week. All submissions from the finalists must be received by 6pm on the Friday of the current week beginning Friday 9/1 to 960 The Ref's email in-box (drpeppersurvivorcontest@gmail.com). 960 The Ref’s email inbox will be the official time keeper.

All finalists not eliminated will continue on to the next week’s games. The last person remaining that has not been eliminated at the conclusion of games the week 11/20-11/25 will be declared the winner. If, after any week during the promotional period PRIOR to the final week, everyone is eliminated without a single winner, then those qualifiers who were not eliminated entering that week will be brought back to continue the contest using 'single elimination' and may not use teams they picked prior. If a single finalist is left at any point during the promotional period they will be declared the winner. If at the end of the promotional period we have a tie, a tie breaker will be used to determine the winner. At the beginning of the promotional period all qualifiers will submit, what they believe is to be the total amount of points scored this season by the University of Georgia football team. If no submission of points if given by 6pm on Friday, 9/1, then official submission of points will be zero.
