During halftime of Saturday's Cam Newton for Heisman Farwell Tour (also known as the SEC Championship Game) Nikki Boon of Grandville, Mich. won the Dr. Pepper Tuition Throw contest in an unusual manner. Check the video:
Rick Barry would be proud. Nikki displayed excellent fundamentals on executing the chest pass and she took home $123,000 towards her college tuition. According to the Grand Rapid Press, she also credited Minnesota DE Ray Edwards for advisin her to go with the two hand pass rather than the traditional overhand motion, which scored the runner-up $23,000 in tuition for his efforts. But no one remember second place, kiddo.
Said Boon after winning, "Thank God and Thank Dr. Pepper!" Amen to that. Oh, and Auburn went on to win the game 56-17 and all but officially secure a spot in the Tostitos Bowl to face Oregon for the BCS Championship.
