BOISE, Idaho ÔÇô Brian Knight and his fianc├®e Nanette Westenhaver are headed to the 2010 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl ÔÇô Lottery style! Knight was the winner of the Idaho Lottery's Fiesta Bowl Fever II promotion that started on December 8, 2009. To participate in this promotion, players needed to enter two, non-wining $5 Idaho Lottery Scratch tickets through the Lottery's website. In total, there were about 5,900 official entries, of which Knight entered only 3 times.
"I can't believe it! I was saying all day on Christmas how much I hoped we'd win," said Knight.
"This is a great New Year's present!" exclaimed an excited Westenhaver.
As the winners, Knight and his fianc├®e will attend the 2010 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona on January 4, 2010 to see Boise State University take on Texas Christian University. The trip departs January 2, 2010 and returns January 5, 2010. Their prize includes round trip airfare from Boise to Phoenix along with airport and game-day transportation. They will also stay at the Frank-Lloyd Wright-inspired Arizona Biltmore Resort and Spa, a four-star resort known as the Jewel of the Desert, receive tickets to the self-proclaimed World's Greatest pre-game tailgate party, and get two game tickets to the 2010 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.
