LEXINGTON, KY (WAVE) - University Kentucky's mens basketball coach John Calipari likes to see a lot of students come out and support his team. In return, he shows his own support for them in a major way.

Each year, Calipari pays tuition for two students for the upcoming semester. All they have to do is show up for the Wildcats' Blue-White Scrimmage.

The students are chosen at random through the BBN Rewards app. The winners are announced at the end of the game, and they must be present to have their tuition paid.

Students can use the app to check in to athletic events at the school and receive various rewards.

This is the fourth year Calipari has rewarded UK students with tuition money for attending the game. 

The Blue-White Scrimmage is this Friday at 7 p.m. at Rupp Arena. Tickets are still available on Ticketmaster.
