Support the Island University in the NCAA 6th Fan Contest

CORPUS CHRISTI – For the next month, fans can show their support of the Island University through the NCAA’s 6th Fan contest. Schools that finish in the top 16 of voting (through Feb. 16) will win $10,000 in scholarship funds.

Beginning on Feb. 16, the top 16 schools will be paired up for one-week tournament-style battles. The champion, crowned on March 16, will win $100,000 to the school’s general scholarship fund.

Fans can vote online at 6thFan.NCAA.com as well as voting via Twitter and Facebook. One vote will be counted per day for each voting method. To vote on Twitter, simply send a tweet with the hashtag #TAMUCC and the hashtag #6thFan.

Fans who vote via NCAA.com will also be registered to win great prizes of their own. Each round, a randomly selected entry will be drawn to win an iPad Air. All entries will be submitted into a grand prize drawing at the end of the competition and one winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the 2015 Men's Final Four® in Indianapolis, including the March Madness® Music Festival and other great tournament weekend events!
