In a battle that saw more than 1,000 combined yards and 13 touchdowns, the 14th-ranked Volunteers sealed the win and a Pontiac Game Changing Performance nomination when Antonio Reynolds stopped Wildcats’ quarterback Andre Woodson’s two-point conversion attempt to end the game.
Now it is up to Tennessee fans to determine if the Volunteers will earn a “Pontiac Game Changing Performance” for the 13th week of the 2007 NCAA® Football Season.
UT fans can go to pontiac.com/ncaa, where they can view video clips of the four finalists and vote for their favorite play. Voting began Sunday morning and ends at midnight Wednesday. ESPN will announce this week’s “Pontiac Game Changing Performance” winner Thursday night during the Pontiac Performance Halftime Report.
The winning university earns a $5,000 contribution from Pontiac to its general scholarship fund. Additionally, the winning play becomes nominated for the “Pontiac Game Changing Performance of the Year” and the chance to win a $100,000 General Scholarship from Pontiac.
“Awarding more than $1 million since its inception, the Pontiac Game Changing Performance program continues to be a great example of how passionate fans can have a positive impact academically and athletically by generating scholarship dollars for university-wide programs,” said Kirk Herbstreit, ESPN GameDay Analyst.
In addition, each week one lucky individual who visits pontiac.com/ncaa also wins a $5,000 scholarship for themselves or their family. In total, Pontiac is providing $300,000 worth of scholarships to universities and individuals throughout the season.
