BC Interruption's EA Sports/Coke Zero Giveaway Winner Is ...

Thanks to all those who participated in this week's EA Sports/Coke Zero giveaway. Before we reveal the winner of the free copy of EA Sports' NCAA Football 13 (XBOX or PS3), let's review the answers to the trivia questions.

In what city was the first Boston College vs. Clemson game played?

That would be Dallas, Texas in the 1940 Cotton Bowl. 15,000 fans packed the Cotton Bowl to watch the 8-1 Tigers knock off the 9-1 Eagles 6-3. All participants got this question right.

What is the name of the trophy awarded to the winner of the Boston College-Clemson game?

The O'Rourke-McFadden Trophy, created in 2008 by the Boston College Gridiron Club and presented to the annual winner in the ACC Atlantic Division series. The trophy honors the legacy of Charlie O'Rourke and Banks McFadden. Clemson has won the trophy three out of four seasons, including last year's 36-24 win over the Eagles. Again, everyone got this one right.

Who scored the GW TD in the first ACC meeting between the two teams?

On second and Toal in the first OT, Boston College linebacker Brian Toal took the ball over the goalline on a 1-yard TD run to cap a 16-13 overtime victory over Clemson in Death Valley. The win was BC's first in the ACC after falling to Florida State in the 2005 home opener.

Which Boston College receiver caught the GW TD in the 2007 victory in Death Valley?

Rich Gunnell, the Eagles wide out on the receiving end of a 43-yard TD pass from QB Matt Ryan with 1:46 to play in the game. The win gave the Eagles their first berth in the ACC Championship Game.

What is the all-time series record between BC and Clemson?

Clemson leads the all-time series 10-9-2.

Which Eagles player scored the only points in the first ever meeting between the two programs?

This was the toughest of the trivia questions. With a final score of 6-3, the Eagles lone points came on a field goal from kicker Alex Lukachik.

Of the participants who correctly answered all six trivia questions, one winner was selected at random. The winner is ...
