WACO, Texas – 2011 Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III will be honored during halftime of Wednesday’s sixth-ranked Baylor’s men’s basketball game against Bethune-Cookman. Wednesday’s game will tip at 7 p.m. CST and will be televised on FOX Sports Southwest, ESPN Full Court and ESPN3.
The halftime presentation will begin with a highlight video, followed by Griffin III’s entrance with the Heisman Trophy and RG3 addressing the crowd. Commemorative RG3 posters will also be available.
Fans can submit their Heisman pose images via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and the best images will be shown on the Ferrell Center ribbon boards during the game. Fans can also tweet their Heisman pose pictures using the hashtag, #RG3Pose – @BUFootball and @RG3forHeisman Twitter accounts will retweet some of the favorites. Fans are also encouraged to wear their favorite crazy socks in support of the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner.
In honor of RG3’s historic accomplishment, remaining tickets will be sold for just $3 and can be purchased at BaylorBears.com/tickets, by calling 254-710-1000 or at the Baylor Athletic Ticket Office at the Ferrell Center. Additionally, two other ticket promos are still available for Baylor’s two December home men’s basketball games.
The McDonald’s Family 4-Pack (four tickets, four drinks, four hot hogs and four McDonald’s coupons for $36) will be available both the Bethune-Cookman (Dec. 14) and Paul Quinn (Dec. 19) games, which are part of the Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic.
Baylor will also be accepting toys for its annual Toys for Tots Drive. Anyone that brings an unwrapped new toy (still in the package) will get one free ticket for that game.
Wednesday’s basketball game and Thursday’s appearance in Copperas Cove to receive a key to his hometown will be the only public events that Robert will participate in ahead of the bowl game, and no autographs will be allowed at either event. Sometime early in 2012, Baylor Athletics will host a recognition event for Robert and his family for fans to show their appreciation to the Griffins. The Athletics Department requests that fans not send or drop off footballs or other items to be autographed at this time, as the Bears’ focus is on winning the Valero Alamo Bowl and achieving only the second 10-win season in school history. Thank you for your understanding.
