Kennesaw State University will offer free football tickets to Florida residents who have evacuated to Georgia due to Hurricane Irma.

Florida residents have to show a valid Florida identification to receive a complimentary ticket to Saturday night's 7 p.m. game versus Tennessee Tech at Fifth Third Bank Stadium.

Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.

"This is a difficult time for many and our prayers are with those in the path of the storm," said interim director of athletics Matt Griffin. "We know many are seeking shelter here in northwest Georgia, and it's our hope that we can offer them a few hours of college football at Fifth Third Bank Stadium as our guests."

Those affected may call 470-KSU-OWLS today or come to the stadium ticket office Saturday. Guests accompanied by their children will also receive a ticket for the kids.

Fans looking to receive a complimentary ticket are encouraged to park in the Grey Lot, which cost $15 on gameday.

Here's a look at the rundown:

  • All lots will open at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
  • The Fan Zone outside the stadium opens at 4 p.m. The first 2,000 fans will receive a custom OYO Sports mini figure courtesy of Fifth Third Bank.
  • The "Owl Walk" occurs at the corner of George Busbee Parkway and Big Shanty Road outside the stadium at 5 p.m.
  • Stadium gates open at 6 p.m.
