College football: Oregon State walk-on earns full scholarship in creative way

In what appeared to be just a simple game, Oregon State walk-on safety Gave Ovgard left practice with a full scholarship.

In a post-practice surprise, Gary Andersen tasked a few players to pick random prizes out of a hat for random teammates. While the first players received less-than-interesting prizes, Ovgard hit the jackpot.
