Spurrier, Sharpe Earn $35,000 in Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge
May 4, 2016

The University of South Carolina duo of Steve Spurrier and Sterling Sharpe carded a seven-under-par score to tie for sixth place in the 2016 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge, held May 3 at the Reynolds Lake Oconee Resort in Greensboro, Ga. The pair earned $35,000, split evenly between endowed scholarships at the University and Coach Spurrier's foundation.

Team Ole Miss, featuring head coach Hugh Freeze and celebrity partner Wesley Walls, carded a score of -11 to win the $100,000 first-place prize. Teams from Georgia, Georgia Tech and NC State finished tied for second at nine-under par.

“Congratulations to Ole Miss’ Hugh Freeze and Wesley Walls for an outstanding come-from-behind victory today,” said Gary Stokan, president and CEO of Peach Bowl, Inc. “The Rebels have been a wonderful partner of the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, our Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game and now as champions of our Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge. We are thrilled to donate $100,000 to them for university scholarships and the Hugh and Jill Freeze Foundation.”

The Ole Miss victory ends a two-year run by defending champion Georgia Tech, who had won four of the last five events.
