Let’s Go Tigers!!

(JACKSON, Miss.) – WJTV’s Ken South, meteorologist and Jackson State University alumnus, is hoping for a flood.

A flood of donations, that is, to benefit his alma mater – and beat out coworker and Alcorn State alumna and WJTV news anchor Melissa Payne – in the 2012 Soul Bowl Giving Challenge.

The local television personalities are feverishly working to outdo each other in the competition between the universities to raise the most funds for scholarships from alumni and supporters between now and Nov. 17 when the Jackson State Tigers meet the Alcorn State Braves in Lorman for the Magnolia Heritage Classic: Soul Bowl 2012.

“I’m so eager to rally the JSU family around this contest,” South said. “I think it’s a great way to show pride in our university and help future Tigers at the same time. Plus, we owe them one for last year. I know Tiger fans won’t let me down.

South and Payne will announce the Soul Bowl Giving Challenge winning school during halftime at the JSU-Alcorn game immediately following an ultimate fan contest in which the winners will be drawn from the JSU and Alcorn donors to the Challenge.

If JSU wins the Giving Challenge, Payne will have to wear Tigers’ blue and white gear. If Alcorn wins, South will have to be decked out in the Alcorn Braves’ gold and purple.
