We reported yesterday that up to four "Qualifying Prizes" will be awarded. Each Qualifying Prize consists of Bose QC 35 headphones. (That's right - callers have to answer 4 questions like in years past but - that only grabs them some Bose QC 35 headphones and the chance at a trip for 2 to the Super Bowl, aka the Grand Prize.)
On Friday January 27, 2017 at approximately 3:00 PM ET, all four Qualifying Prize winners must call in to the station (boy, that might just be a technical disaster). As part of the Grand Prize Game, each Qualifying Prize winner will be asked to correctly answer another football-related trivia question or to identify another information football-related audio. (Each Qualifying Prize winner will receive a different question/audio.)
In order to advance to the next round, the Qualifying Prize winner must correctly answer their trivia question or identify the requested information in the audio. If at any time a Qualifying Prize winner does not answer the trivia question or identify the audio correctly, he/she will be disqualified and will not advance to the next round.
This will continue until only one Qualifying Prize winner advances to the next round -- making him/her the Grand Prize winner.
Today? Francesa was forced to relay the rules and the fact that each Qualifying Prize winner will receive a different question/audio challenge.
Wow. That is rough. And now Craig Carton weighed in on the contest.
