Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

ANN AR­BOR, MICH. >> A Michigan steak­house got more siz­zle than it bar­gained for out of a col­lege foot­ball pro­mo­tion.

Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Ann Ar­bor an­nounced on its Face­book page Fri­day that for the re­main­der of the sea­son, cus­tomers would re­ceive a per­cent­age off their to­tal food bill equal to the fi­nal win­ning point dif­fer­en­tial in the lat­est Univer­sity of Michigan foot­ball game.

Then came Michigan’s 78-0 drub­bing of Rut­gers on Satur­day, its largest mar­gin of vic­tory since an 85-0 win in 1939 over the Univer­sity of Chicago. But the Face­book post­ing capped the dis­count at 50 per­cent and said the of­fer does not in­clude al­co­hol.

The restau­rant posted on its web­site Sun­day that it was “fully com­mit­ted with reser­va­tions” through Thurs­day, when the of­fer ex­pires.
