The winner and guest will have the opportunity to remain in the broadcast booth and observe the broadcast through the end of the game's first half.

About Steve Jones
A 1980 Penn State graduate with a degree in speech communication and broadcasting, Jones began doing radio play-by-play of Nittany Lion basketball games during his undergraduate career. He became voice of the men's basketball team in 1982 and debuted on the football broadcast with the 2000 Blue-White Game. In all, he has done radio play-by-play for nearly 900 Penn State basketball and football games.

Jones' responsibilities at Penn State also include hosting the "The Penn State Football Show" and the "Penn State Basketball Show" call-in programs every Thursday during the fall and winter, as well as producing the "Inside Penn State Athletics" segments for the Penn State Sports Network five days a week. April 9th will mark the fifth time that Jones has served as the Master of Ceremony for the annual "We Are...Curing Autism Now" event in State College.

About Jack Ham
An All-American in 1970, Jack Ham became the 10th Nittany Lion to be enshrined in the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame when he was inducted in 1990. Ham is the only Penn State product in both the college and professional football halls of fame. A nine-time All-Pro linebacker for the National Football League Pittsburgh Steelers, Ham was enshrined at Canton in 1988. As a senior co-captain in 1970, Ham had 91 tackles and intercepted four passes. He still shares a pair of defensive records for blocked punts: four in his career, three in his final season. He had 251 career tackles (143 solo). A second-round draft choice of the Steelers in 1971, Ham developed into one of the NFL's most outstanding linebackers. He starred on all four of the Steelers' Super Bowl championship teams and was the Defensive Player-of-the-Year in 1975. He is president of a drug testing services company and also works as a radio and television football analyst, including his role with the Penn State Sports Network. He is a Penn State Distinguished Alumni Award recipient.
