Clemson’s Reggie Merriweather takes the handoff from Charlie Whitehurst and runs

Additionally, the winning play may be nominated for the “Pontiac Game Changing Performance of the Year” competition in December. The play selected in fan voting as the best of the year will earn an additional $100,000 general scholarship fund contribution from Pontiac to the winning NCAA® institution. The key is – fans need to get online and vote!

By the end of the season, Pontiac, a leading sponsor of the NCAA sporting events and collegiate athletics will have contributed nearly $200,000 to NCAA institutions.
