CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) – Thanks to Miami’s offense, 1 of the school’s students won an 80-inch television.
He just doesn’t know where it’ll fit in his house.
RJ Curcio won it through a promotion by TigerDirect, a store that invited fans to text and enter a contest to win a TV, the size coinciding with the 15th-ranked Hurricanes’ point total last weekend.
They scored 77, and the closest TV size to that was 80 inches. Curcio takes delivery Friday.
Curcio says he has “no idea where we can put it.” He was looking for a new TV recently, since his old one was damaged in a power surge.
TigerDirect Brand Manager Steven Leeds says “with the way the Hurricanes have been playing, we expect to be giving out a lot of big TV’s.”
