LANSING, August 23, 2010 – With football season right around the corner, the Michigan Lottery is getting in on the gridiron action with the Detroit Lions Pull Tab.

The Football Fever Second Chance Contest will award five lucky Pull Tab players an authentic NFL football autographed by the Detroit Lions player of their choice.
