NRG Media, LLC and KLIN (the “Station”) Official Contest Rules for the Fantasy Huskers Contest

Void where prohibited. All decisions of Station are final.

These Contest Rules apply to the KLIN Fantasy Huskers Contest and are supplemental to the Station’s general contest rules. In case of conflict, these rules will govern this contest.

By participating, Listeners agree to all rules that apply to that contest.


No purchase is necessary to enter.

The contest or promotion will take place during the Nebraska Cornhuskers Football Season, August 31st – November 28th, on all game weeks, home and away. Contest entry begins on August 31, 2016 and ends on November 28, 2016.

Each week of a Nebraska football game, (home and away games) KLIN will play "Fantasy Huskers".  Listeners will listen for the cue to call, one each morning during LNK Today and one each afternoon during Drive Time Lincoln with Coby Mach.    There will be a total of 10 contestants each week.

Each week, the Station will name an achievement or statistic they expect the team to reach during the game, and each contestant will have an opportunity to select their prediction for that achievement.  (Example:  When do you believe the first touchdown will be scored? And the contestant would give their time prediction) Contestants’ predictions cannot be the same. Whichever contestant has the closest prediction will be the winner for that week.  The weekly winner will be announced the Monday after the game.  Weekly winners are not eligible to win another weekly prize for the duration of the contest. 

Weekly winners will each receive a $50 gift certificate to Valentino's. Weekly winners are also entered into a drawing for the grand prize - a trip for two to the Husker bowl game from Travel and Transport.  In the event that the Nebraska football team does not qualify for a bowl game, an alternate prize will be awarded to the grand prize winner.

The Husker Bowl Trip for two will include round-trip air and ground transportation to the bowl location, a single hotel room, and admission to the game for 2.  Estimated value will be $3,500.  Exact value will depend on where the Bowl Game will be held.  Bowl trip and final destination will be announced in December.

On Monday, November 28,, 2016, a grand prize winner will be randomly selected from the pool of weekly winners.  The Grand Prize winner will be announced on KLIN and contacted by phone. Winner will work with Travel and Transport Travel Agency to book flights, hotel and all travel accommodations.

19. Due to the nature of our programs that are heard on-line over the internet, contests heardon the radio station’s internet audio stream are slightly delayed from the time the contests are heard on the broadcast station, and will be running behind the broadcast signal. Thus, all contests heard are delayed. This delay can last for as much as 30 seconds or more. This means that when KLIN contests are played that require a specific caller to telephone the radio station (such as “Caller number 9 when you hear the sound effect”), listeners to the on-line audio stream may be at a disadvantage in participating over those listeners who hear the contests on-air.
20.  For contests that KLIN conducts on a regular basis (same time each day, called “benchmark” contests), participants can win only once within a 14 day time period.  When conducting specialty and larger contests, participants may be allowed to win a “benchmark” contest and a specialty contest without waiting for the 14 day time period to expire.
