YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) - Tuition is on the house for an Eastern Michigan student.

Alex Theison of Manchester won a year of free tuition Thursday, worth $10,000, during EMU’s football game against Western Michigan.

The 18-year-old and another student were on the field along with two people dressed as Swoop, the eagle mascot. The mascots had to throw footballs into a container 10 yards away.

Theison’s mascot won, 5-4.

EMU has offered tuition prizes in the past but not as much as $10,000. A similar promotion is planned when the Eagles play Massachusetts on Nov. 14.
