Battle For The Bones BBQ Contest At UAB
Nov. 11, 2010
MEMPHIS, TENN. -
The annual Conference USA football contest between the Memphis Tigers and the UAB Blazers was dubbed in 2006 as the Battle for the Bones game, and a 100-pound bronzed rack of ribs is up for grabs to the team that wins the game on Nov. 20, 2010.
The Battle for the Bones was developed by the student support groups of both teams - the U of M's Blue Crew and UAB's Gang Green. The game will also be surrounded by a barbecue contest where fans are invited to sign up and have their grilling skills judged against fans from the other school to determine which city has the best barbecue.
The BBQ competition is open to both professionals and amateurs, and each team is limited to four members. All contestants must be registered by Nov. 15, 2010. The two categories for the competition are ribs and sauce. There are three prizes for ribs: first place is $1500; second place is $500; and third place is $250. The sauce winner will receive a trophy.
Spots are limited and all forms/entry fees must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 15. There will be no sign-ups on site. Fans from either school, who are interested in entering the barbecue cooking competition, should download the form HERE and fill it out and mail it with the $100 entry fee ($50 for students) to the address below. The entry fee includes a parking pass for a vehicle and four tickets to the game.
