The Texas Longhorns athletic department is offering up more than just words of encouragement for Hurricane Harvey victims — anyone who has been displaced from their home due to the natural disaster can receive up to six free tickets to Saturday’s game against the San Jose State Spartans.

The news comes courtesy of TexasSports.com. Those requesting tickets must fill out a form no later than noon on Thursday, Sept. 7 with their name, address, phone number, email and number of tickets requested.

A follow-up email will be sent on Friday, Sept. 9 with a promotional code and instructions on how to claim tickets. Per the release, tickets will be delivered via mobile phone or email as print-at-home tickets.

Also during the SJSU game, Texas will honor first responders, and fans arriving early through the gates will receive a Texas flag.

Fan Fest at the North End Zone opens at 11:30 a.m CT.; all other gates open at 12:30 p.m. Pregame begins at 1:30 p.m. Kickoff is at 2:30.
