As the official halftime sponsor of the Egg Bowl, College Savings Mississippi hosted the Tuition Toss on the field during halftime. Two students, who were chosen at random from a pool of registered contestants, were given 30 seconds to throw up to 30 footballs through a target. The student with the most footballs through the target was the winner while the other student was the runner-up.
Congratulations to Michael Boyles, a 19-year-old student at Mississippi State University from Clinton, Mississippi, who won the tuition toss and went home with a $2,529 MACS (Mississippi Affordable College Savings) scholarship. Hayden Tutor, an 18-year-old student at the University of Mississippi from Madison, Mississippi, was the runner-up, winning a $529 MACS scholarship.
