FedEx Salutes the Passing Attack

Nov. 22, 2004

Corvallis, Ore. - Each week FedEx is saluting the top Air and Ground performances of the previous college football weekend. The Oregon State Beavers have been nominated as a FedEx Express College Football Team of the Week based on the 368-yard, 4 TD air performance.

Beginning Monday at 1:00 PM ET, and ending on Thursday at 5:00 PM ET, fans will be able to log onto to vote for who they believe had the best Air and Ground performances of the weekend. Each weekly FedEx Express and FedEx Ground Team of the Week is automatically eligible for the respective FedEx Air & Ground College Football Teams of the Year award. The teams of the year will be announced during halftime of the FedEx Orange Bowl on ABC, and the winning schools will each receive $25,000 towards their general scholarship fund.

We hope that you will encourage your fans to vote for Oregon State by posting information on your website, distributing press releases to the local media, etc. Based on results of a similar program FedEx runs with the NFL, the teams that promoted their nominees the most were much more likely to win the weekly award.
