EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State wasn’t the only winner against Oregon and Central Michigan: Football fans who bought raffle tickets at Spartan Stadium won thousands of dollars but haven’t claimed their prizes yet.

Paul Schager of the athletic department says the winners have 60 days from the games to step forward. A ticket drawn at the Sept. 12 Oregon game is worth nearly $33,000. The ticket drawn at the Sept. 26 Central Michigan game is worth about $27,000.

The ticket at the Oregon game was A348344. The ticket at the CMU game was C172065.

Schager tells the Lansing State Journal that the money goes to charity after the 60-day period expires.

It’s the first time a winner hasn’t claimed a prize since the athletic department began running the raffle in 2013.
