DALLAS (FWAA) – Big Game USA Football
Factory, based in Dallas, Texas, is now the presenting
sponsor of the Football Writers Association of America's
National Team of the Week. Announced each Monday of the
college football season since 2002, the honor is voted on by the
FWAA's prestigious All-America committee.
Since the 2012 season, the team of the week has been exclusively
unveiled on SiriusXM Radio's "College Football Nation."
Coupled with the announcement, an FWAA member who covers the winning
team appears live on the program. The weekly recipient will receive
commemorative footballs specially designed and crafted by Big Game
"We are pleased to expand our relationship with the FWAA,"
said Big Game's Chris Calandro. "Since we already help so many
teams recognize great achievements through our custom commemorative
balls, it was a natural to work with the FWAA to help it pay tribute
to one team that stands out each week during the season."
"The Big Game National Team of the Week helps us continue
a tradition started in 2002," said FWAA Executive Director
Steve Richardson. "This weekly honor is one of many we are
proud to present and goes a long way to help promote college football
by recognizing one team's weekly achievement."
The Football Writers Association of America has named a national
team of the week since the 2002 season. This is the first season
The Big Game Football Factory has presented the award. Members of
the FWAA All-America Committee decide the weekly honor. Each remaining
Monday during the 2014 college football regular season, the FWAA
will name a National Team of the Week.
Big Game USA is the largest American-owned football
factory. Nearly half of all Football Bowl Subdivision programs play with a
ball made by Big Game USA. This season, Big Game has introduced
gametag™, the latest development in football technology. It allows
fans an opportunity to own a piece of football memorabilia, but
more than that, gametag™ offers complete authentication. Currently,
four Division I schools (Mississippi State, Navy, Nebraska and Texas
A&M) use balls equipped with gametag™. For more information
