UCF wins First Battle for Bowl Week Competition

ATLANTA, Ga. (FNN SPORTS) – UCF took home the first Batte for Bowl Week competition defeating Auburn in the Andreti Indoor Karting race with a faster time of 22.69 seconds to 22.91 seconds for Auburn. Players from both teams were given the opportunity to test their driving skills, with the winner being determined by the quickest average total lap time between the teams.

Before the teams face off on the field, No.12 UCF and No. 7 Auburn will battle it out in a series of competitions throughout Bowl Week, vying for the coveted Battle for Bowl Week Belt.

Bragging rights aren’t the only thing at stake. The winner of the Battle for Bowl Week has gone on to win the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl in six of the last seven games and is undefeated in non-Semifinal years.

This year’s Battle for Bowl Week competitions include:

December 27:

Each team will participate in go-kart racing at Andretti Indoor Karting.  Team members will be given the opportunity to test their driving skills as part of the competition for this event.  The average lap time for each team will be totaled and the team with the quickest average time will be declared the winner for this event.

December 29: 
Competition #3
Drop It Like It’s Hot
Four members of each team will participate in this game.  Teams are shown multiple choice questions and have 15 seconds to discuss.  They are then allotted a fixed amount of points they can wager on each answer.  One-by-one incorrect answers drop off the screen along with any points they wagered on that answer.  The team with the most points at end of the game wins.

Competition #4
Football Feud
Four offensive players, four defensive players and two assistant coaches from both teams will square off in a football version of the popular game show “Family Feud.” Each team will attempt to name the top answers to questions asked.  Football Feud is a two round game.
