John Calipari paying Spring tuition for 2 students at Blue-White Game

It may just be one semester, but at UK, that's in the neighborhood of $6,000.

For the third straight year, Kentucky Wildcats head coach John Calipari will pay for the 2016 spring semester in-state tuition for two lucky students who attend Tuesday's Blue-White Scrimmage at Rupp Arena.

This year, students will check into the Blue-White Scrimmage via the new BBN Rewards app. Students who check in at the B/W Game with it will be eligible to win the free tuition. The app is available for download on Apple and Android devices allows UK students to earn a variety of rewards for attending UK sporting events. Students accumulate points by checking in when they arrive at UK events, which can lead to rewards and perks being unlocked.

The winners will be randomly selected and announced at the completion of the scrimmage. In the event of an out-of-state or graduate/professional student winner, the spring semester in-state undergraduate tuition amount will be applied.

Calipari started the scholarship tradition at UK during the 2013-14 season, but previously did it during his days at UMass.
