Gridiron Bash Postponed

The Gridiron Bash, a series of football pep rallies and concerts to be held at 16 schools across the nation, has been postponed by the event’s sponsor, MSL Sports and Entertainment. The University of Kentucky was scheduled to hold its version of the Gridiron Bash, including a concert by Wynonna Judd and Dierks Bentley, on April 18.

The event also featured a competition for fan participation, with the top three schools receiving $1 million, $500,000, and $250,000, respectively, for their general scholarship funds. MSL said it will postpone the Gridiron Bash until the fall of 2008 or the spring of 2009.
