On Friday, December 9th at the ESPN Zone in New York City, Michael Hawkins, a senior at Clemson University, defeated Dan Ward of Penn State University to claim the title of 2005 EA SPORTS NCAA Football Challenge Champion.

Playing as the Texas Longhorns, Hawkins defeated Ward (playing as the USC Trojans) 36-35 in a tight contest (Ward missed a 61 yard field goal as time expired on the clock). Hawkins and Ward were both repeat winners as they won the regional tournaments at their respective schools last year in the 2004 EA SPORTS NCAA Football Challenge (Hawkins was the runner-up last year losing to Jesse Hanninen of Florida State in the final match-up).

As the 2005 champion, Hawkins won a grand prize of $10,000 and attended the Heisman Trophy presentation on Saturday, December 10th where Reggie Bush was awarded the trophy. Hawkins will also be attending the Heisman Trophy Awards Dinner in New York City tonight where Bush will be honored.
