College Showdown Fantasy Football
August 31, 2011
It’s almost the start of the college football season and as every fan knows, this is a sport that was made for grilling!
Kicking the action off right, the makers of Kingsford® charcoal have once again teamed up with ESPN.com to launch the 2011 College Showdown Fantasy Football Game. Starting immediately, fans can register to play by visiting http://games.espn.go.com/collegeshowdown/en/frontpage.
Then on Thursday, September 1, participants can begin making their picks in a bid to capture one of numerous great weekly prizes – from premium Snake River Farms meats to cookbooks to signed Mike Golic footballs and more! In the end, however, there can be only one National Champion and that lucky player will walk away from the game with $10,000 and ultimate fantasy football bragging rights.
But the action doesn’t stop there! Schools and their fans can also get in on the game this year through the introduction of the “Best of the Best” school rivalry function. To participate, simply join your school’s “Fans of” Group in the College Showdown settings before Thursday, October 13. At the end of the 14 week showdown, the player with the highest score at each of the top 25* participating schools will win a year’s supply of Kingsford® charcoal while the player with the highest overall score from those schools will also win a “Best of the Best” prize pack. Finally, be sure to keep checking back here at Grilling.com all football season for great recipes, tailgating tips, prizes and more!
* Note: The “top 25” schools will be defined by the 25 with the most “Fans Of” at the end of the showdown.
