Louisville is now eligible to become the FedEx Ground College Football Team of the Year. The teams of the year will be announced during the halftime of the FedEx Orange Bowl, and the winning schools will each receive $25,000 towards their general scholarship fund. Voting for the team of the year program will take place at the conclusion of the college football regular season.
To celebrate the "delivery" of this season's BCS National Championship game at the 2005 FedEx Orange Bowl, FedEx is running the FedEx Air & Ground College Football Teams of the Week campaign. Each week, fans are encouraged to go to http://www.fedexorangebowl.com/ to vote for that week's top "air" and "ground" team performances named the FedEx Express and FedEx Ground teams of the week. Additionally, fans that vote will have a chance to win an all-expense paid trip to the 2005 FedEx Orange Bowl in Miami! In addition, the winners will be announced each Thursday on fedexorangebowl.com. FedEx will be promoting this awards program via online banners and with radio spots nationally and in key college football outlets.
In conjunction with the voting program, FedEx has announced that the company will make a donation of $25,000 to the general scholarship fund of the two teams that are voted as the FedEx Air & Ground College Football Teams of the Year. Each weekly FedEx Express and FedEx Ground team of the week is automatically eligible for the team of the year award. The winning teams will also be announced during halftime of the FedEx Orange Bowl telecast on ABC.
