NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR TO WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.
THIS SWEEPSTAKES IS DEVISED AS A NON-GAMBLING PROMOTION AND IS INTENDED SOLELY FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES.
ALL FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL AND MUNICIPAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS APPLY. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.
1. Eligibility. Subject to the additional restrictions below, the Bud Light® 3 for All Contest (the “Sweepstakes”) is open to legal residents of the state of Georgia who are 21 years or older at the time of entry. Employees of Cox Radio, LLC d/b/a Cox Media Group Athens (“Sponsor”), CMG Media Corporation, Anheuser-Busch, LLC, Locos Franchise Company, Inc., and each of their respective affiliated companies, subsidiaries, and advertising and promotional agencies, and the family members of, and any persons domiciled with, any such employees, are not eligible to enter or to win. The term “family members” includes spouses, parents, grandparents, siblings, children, grandchildren and in-laws, regardless of where they live. Persons belonging to or affiliated with a professional acting, theater, or film-making organization, such as SAG or AFTRA, are not allowed to compete in the Sweepstakes or participate in any entry. Professional actors and filmmakers, whether full-time or part-time, are allowed to compete so long as they do not belong to any professional organizations connected with the entertainment industry that would cause Sponsor to pay the entrant or any other person a fee or any other benefit for taking part in any Sweepstakes event.
Limit: Only one (1) prize winner may be selected from the same household every thirty (30) days in connection with any Sweepstakes sponsored or administered by any of the CMG Athens radio stations (each, a “Station”). If you or a member of your household has won a prize from any Station within the last thirty (30) days, you will be ineligible to receive a prize in this Sweepstakes.
2. Sweepstakes Period. The Sweepstakes will begin on or about 6:00 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) on August 31, 2022 and ends on or about 11:59 p.m. ET on December 2, 2022 (the “Sweepstakes Period”). Sponsor will be the official timekeeper for the Sweepstakes.
3. How to Enter. During the Sweepstakes Period, entrants can enter the Sweepstakes each week (i.e., Monday through Sunday) by completing the following steps:
i. Select any three (3) college football games* and select the team in such game that you predict will cover the daily point spread (each a “pick”), as such spread is determined by Sponsor’s Daily Snapshot of http://classic.betonline.ag/sportsbook/football/ncaa (defined below).
a. *Note: To be an eligible game, both of the teams participating in such game must be NCAA Division 1 FBS teams. Entrants can only submit picks for college football games that (i) have not started at the time of entry, and (ii) will occur on Wednesday through Sunday on any applicable week (e.g., Sponsor will not accept picks for Tuesday games).
ii. Submit your week’s three (3) picks in one of the following ways:
a. Call Sponsor to submit picks during the Morning Show at (706) 549-6000 (the “Sweepstakes Line”) on any Wednesday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. ET to 10:00 a.m. ET during the Sweepstakes Period on each day (for the week of Thanksgiving (Nov. 24, 2022), entrants can call Sponsor to submit picks on Tuesday and Wednesday only, November 22 and 23, during the same 6:00 a.m. ET to 10:00 a.m. ET submission window); or
b. Email Sponsor at 960theRef@cmg.com (the “Sweepstakes Email”) during any week of the Sweepstakes Period, 6:00 a.m. ET on Wednesday through 6:00 p.m. ET on Friday.
iii. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules and qualification, each entrant who correctly picks all three (3) of their week’s games (“Weekly Qualifier”) will be entered into a random drawing for such week during the Sweepstakes Period (each, a “Weekly Drawing”) for the chance to be selected as the potential “Weekly Winner” (as defined below); and
iv. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules and qualification, each Weekly Winner will then be entered into a random drawing for the chance to win the one (1) Grand Prize (the “Grand Prize Drawing”).
For the avoidance of doubt, an entrant becomes a Weekly Qualifier when the entrant accurately selects three (3) FBS vs. FBS football games where their selected team covers the point spread listed in the Daily Snapshot (as defined below) (e.g., the selected favored team wins by at least one (1) point more than what is listed in the Daily Snapshot of the point spread for such game). The entrant merely selecting the winning team is not sufficient to become a Weekly Qualifier. A “push” (when the game concludes with the exact point spread shown on the relevant point spread at the time of entry) does not qualify as a successful pick.
Sponsor will take a snapshot of the point spreads available on http://classic.betonline.ag/sportsbook/football/ncaa each Wednesday through Friday at 6:00 a.m. during the Sweepstakes Period (the “Daily Snapshot”). Each 6:00 a.m. Daily Snapshot will be the point spread used for that day’s submission window. During Thanksgiving week, the Daily Snapshot will be taken at 6:00 a.m. only on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 22 and 23, respectively.
Entrants cannot submit picks for a game that has already occurred for the applicable week (e.g., an entrant cannot submit picks on Friday for one or more games that occurred on the preceding Thursday). Sponsor will confirm the applicable day’s point spread with each entrant at the time picks are submitted.
If there are no Weekly Qualifiers for a given week, then all such entrants for such week will be entered into such week’s Weekly Drawing. If one or more of the games picked by an entrant is cancelled or postponed for any reason, and the picked game is not played on that particular week, then those picks will be counted as a win. Entrants will not be penalized for games that are not played.
Limit: One (1) set of three (3) picks per entrant per week, regardless of method of entry. An entrant can only be a Weekly Winner once during the Sweepstakes Period.
Entry into the Sweepstakes shall be deemed consent to record any telephone conversation between an entrant and Sponsor. 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 the 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 a Sweepstakes Line or for a participant’s failure to reach a 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 call-in period of a Sweepstakes prior to accepting the correct caller, or a change in programming that results in Sponsor’s inability to air call-in opportunity, Sponsor will not replay the affected call-in opportunity.
In the event a caller gets disconnected for any reason before providing their entry, Sponsor may resume the call-in opportunity affected, pending verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. Sponsor will not be responsible for dropped calls from mobile devices or land lines and dropped calls may result in a potential winner’s disqualification and forfeiture of all interest in any prize.
Any winning entrant must be the same person who originally sent the entry or dialed the phone to the radio station to participate in a Sweepstakes. No family members, friends, office associates, or any other person will be allowed to participate in a Sweepstakes on another person’s behalf. An entrant must provide his or her own name as listed on his or her valid Georgia driver’s license or Georgia state-issued ID (or other proof of Georgia residency, such as a copy of a utility bill), subject to the Sweepstakes eligibility requirements. If a participant uses a false name on any ID submitted as proof of identification, he or she will be immediately disqualified from the Sweepstakes and be ineligible to win any prize.
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. In the event of a dispute, an entry will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the account from which the entry was sent. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to a telephone number or other identifier automatically associated with the entry by a service provider that is responsible for assigning the same. 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.
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, or entries that do not meet the size or formatting requirements specified above, 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. All entries become property of Sponsor and none will be returned.
Any questions regarding the number of entries submitted shall be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, and 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 aspects of the Sweepstakes.
All entries become property of Sponsor and none will be returned.

6. Winner Notification and Acceptance. Potential Weekly Winners will be selected and notified on or about the Monday following each week of the Sweepstakes Period at the phone number from which entrant called Sponsor to submit his or her picks. During the week of Labor Day, the Weekly Winner will be selected and notified on or about September 6. Weekly Qualifiers will not be notified by Sponsor that they are entered into the Weekly Drawing. The potential Grand Prize winner will be notified on or about December 6, 2022, at the phone number or email address from which entrant contacted Sponsor to submit his or her picks.

Potential winners may be required to complete an affidavit of eligibility, and a liability and publicity release (except where prohibited by law), which must be notarized and returned within twenty-four (24) hours of notification and a written commitment to be awarded the prizing.
Sponsor’s inability to reach a potential Weekly Winner or Grand Prize winner after a reasonable (as determined solely by Sponsor) effort has been made, the failure of a potential Finalist to timely respond to a prize notification, the return of any prize notification as undeliverable and/or a potential winner’s failure to comply with any term or condition of these Official Rules may, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, result in the potential Finalist’s disqualification and the selection of a substitute Finalist by a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. Sponsor will conduct up to three alternate drawings, after which the prize will remain un-awarded.
