Escape with football tickets
DETROIT - Ford Division and ABC Sports have teamed up to give away 16 Escape sport-utilities and eight trips to four college football bowl games.
People can enter by playing a football game at FordEscape BCS.com or by calling (866) To Escape.
After playing, consumers will be entered into the 'Watch and Win' program. During the Rose, Sugar, Fiesta and Orange bowls, Ford will broadcast TV commercials highlighting the Escape's features. Ford then will select and call contestants, and the first four who name the correct feature stressed at each game will win an Escape.
Ford is working out details to give away a 17th vehicle through ABC online during the Orange Bowl, which would require digital TV to win, said Stu Smith, Escape brand manager.
