Online Game Gives Fans a Chance to Compete for Daily Prizes and Exclusive Experiences from Some of College Football's Most Popular Schools

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- What if Coke Zero could make your college football fantasies come true? Can you imagine leading the "Tiger Walk" as Auburn University players enter Jordan-Hare Stadium to face rival Georgia? How about a VIP experience and tickets to a mid-season USC game as it takes on a conference foe? Want to have dinner in the press box, visit the locker room or get sideline passes to watch your favorite team in action? Thanks to the Coke Zero Playbook of Possibilities, it's possible, and the distinct prizes and once-in-a-lifetime experiences don't stop there.

This fall, Coke Zero is putting college football fans' decision-making skills to the test with its new Playbook Challenge game at The online game challenges fans to use their knowledge of and passion for the game to create their own plays for chances to win exciting prizes from some of the most popular football schools in the country, as well as a grand-prize trip to the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta on Dec. 31.

The Playbook Challenge game runs from Aug. 31 through Oct. 25, and players can participate every day for a chance to earn more points and more chances to win.
