EL PASO, Texas – The Sun Bowl Association and the YMCA of El Paso have teamed up to give football fans around the country the chance to win a $1,500 Sun Bowl Game Package for the Hyundai Sun Bowl by participating in the YMCA Hyundai Sun Bowl Challenge.
The contest starts this week as the 2015 college football season opens up. Contestants will attempt to predict the winners of 10 predetermined Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and PAC-12 games, the Hyundai Sun Bowl conference affiliates, each week. The first set of games for contestants to predict are set for Saturday, Sept. 5.
“The YMCA has always enjoyed being a part of the events that the Sun Bowl Association puts on,” said Bill Coon, CEO/President of the El Paso YMCA. “The community has been very generous to us and other organizations such as ours, so we are more than happy to partner with the Sun Bowl Association to do this.”
With each game valued at one point, a weekly winner will be determined by the individual who accumulates the most points. In addition, contestants will be asked to estimate the total points scored by both teams of a predetermined game. In case of a tiebreaker, the contestant with the most accurate prediction of total points scored will be the weekly winner.
“Fans from around the country had a great time with this promotion last year,” said Sun Bowl Association Executive Director Bernie Olivas. “We want to continue to make the college football experience a fun and exciting experience so we decided to team up with the YMCA of El Paso to do this. We would like to thank the YMCA of El Paso for helping the Sun Bowl Association with this contest.”
The 13 weekly winners will win two 2015 Hyundai Sun Bowl tickets, one month free adult membership to the YMCA of El Paso and will automatically advance to “Championship Week” in which they will once again predict the winners of each college football conference championship game. The contestant with the most points will two Captain’s Club level tickets to the 2015 Hyundai Sun Bowl, two VIP Pre-game tent party tickets, one parking pass with a one year family membership to the YMCA of El Paso.
