Pageant queen throws a football for a chance at $100K

Kelsie Berg is already a winner. The University of Oklahoma freshman has been selected as a top 5 finalist for the Dr. Pepper $100,000 BCS Bowl Scholarship giveaway.

Berg already won an all-expense paid trip to the game in Miami, FL, by receiving the most online votes for her home video. Now, she will compete against four others in a football throw at halftime. The winner receives the $100,000 scholarship. 

Berg says she's been practicing throwing a football into a hula hoop at home, and her dad has been blowing an air horn to act as a distraction as if she's on the field.

Berg hopes to use the scholarship to pay for law school. 

The BCS Championship game airs Monday, January 7.
