Although this year's Super Bowl was a close game, McMullen Ford's Big Game Challenge may have been an even tighter contest.
Two entrants – Tom Sondag of Neola and Maryanna Smiley of Omaha – predicted the exact final score of yesterday's game. Their tiebreaker entries, however, were separated by a single yard.
Sondag, who picked the Ravens to finish with one fewer rushing yard than Smiley, is the recipient of a $50 gift card, courtesy of McMullen, for his predictions. Smiley will receive a $25 gift card.
Third prize – also a $25 gift card – goes to Paul Wettestad of Council Bluffs, who was one point away from each team's final score.
