Iowa has revised a promotion offering free tuition to five students buying season tickets for football by making the offer available to all students.

The Hawkeyes were forced to suspend a plan that offered $8,000 in free tuition to randomly selected student ticket holders after it ran afoul of state raffle laws.

But Iowa brought it back Monday. It now says that any student who wants to participate in the promotion simply has to notify the athletic department by 5 p.m. on Tuesday.

Iowa's revised plan was approved by the state's Attorney General's office.

The tuition promotion was one of a number of plans by Iowa to combat lagging student attendance.
