Ole Miss: Search Results

ESPN College Gameday might not be coming to Ole Miss this week, but Ole Miss will be going there, as alumna Melissa King (@Dent4DA) won this week's AT&T #BeTheFan challenge. As the winner, she will receive a VIP trip to this week's ESPN College Gameday in Fargo, N.D., on the campus on North Dakota State. 

"I have never been to Fargo, so I get to see a part of the country that I have never seen," King said. "And of course, I get to see the hosts of College Gameday, which is fantastic. I will get to see a behind-the-scenes tour of how everything is set up and how everything works. It's going to be a wonderful experience. And I get to see a different kind of football and a different kind of tailgating from what we're used to in the Grove."

The contest asked participants to submit photos or videos via Instagram, Twitter or Vine showing their game day ritual or superstition. Her winning video is of her dog Jedi, a rescued Maltese Mix, raising his two front paws like the motion for a touchdown.

As part of the VIP trip, she will receive backstage access to meet with Chris Fowler, Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard, tickets to the game and the opportunity to represent Ole Miss during the broadcast while holding the Twitter Sign of the Week. 

She will also be entered to win the Grand Prize trip to Pasadena, Calif., for the 2014 BCS National Championship game.

"I can't be more proud that I get to represent Ole Miss and our university," she said. "I won this competition because it was Ole Miss that the judges picked, and it's humbling that not only I won, but I also did it while I was also representing Ole Miss. 

"And now I get to Fargo and meet people who work in college sports on a national level and get to promote the good that is Ole Miss and be a representative of Rebel Nation and show that we're back in the football game."

King, originally from Madison, Miss., is a 2007 Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College graduate with a degree in Business Administration. She is now a practicing attorney living outside Atlanta, with her own firm specializing in Family Law and Estate Planning.

She went to one Ole Miss game last year and has already made plans to go to the Ole Miss-Auburn game in a few weeks. While she doesn't get to go back to Oxford as much as she would like to, she hopes next season she will be a season ticket holder. She also hopes ESPN College Gameday will soon visit Ole Miss.

"It's a perfect time to go, and if I can get in a good word to get College Gameday to come to the Grove, I will absolutely do it," she said. "I think it's time. They need to be there. I was an Ole Miss ambassador and got plenty of students to come to Ole Miss, so I'm going to do my best to get those guys to see us."

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.
