  • The University of Nevada Reno, where Colin Kaepernick broke NCAA records playing, is offering a raffle to the 2013 49ers season opener to those who purchase season tickets for the school's football season.

Nevada athletic officials are trying to capitalize on “Kap” mania.

Ex-Wolf Pack quarterback Colin Kaepernick has the 49ers one win away from their first Super Bowl since 1995. And university officials are hoping the man who is fast becoming one of the school’s most famous alums will help them sell some football tickets next season.

They announced that anyone who purchases or renews at least two season tickets will be eligible to win up to four tickets and pregame field passes for the 49ers’ 2013 season opener. While at Nevada, he became the only player in NCAA history with three seasons of 2,000 yards passing and 1,000 yards rushing.
