Our take: It's fun to see good things happen to good people, especially struggling, starving college students. This is a fun feature about a student at BYU-Idaho who no longer has to worry about scholarship applications, student fees and expensive textbooks.
ANAHEIM HILLS, Calif. — An Anaheim Hills native made a life-changing score at Dallas Cowboys Stadium: taking home $100,000 toward his college tuition.
Anthony Asplund, 22, a junior at Brigham Young University-Idaho, won the Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway by throwing more footballs into a giant replica of a Dr Pepper can than his opponent.
"When I was throwing them, I wasn't paying attention to the score," Asplund said. "I was just throwing."
On the night before the Dallas Cowboys Classic game, between the University of Michigan and the University of Alabama on Aug. 31, Asplund was one of five college students squaring off on the empty stadium's field.
