Pat McAfee and Moxy Channel have extended the video submission deadline for U Got It? Ball State from November 20th to November 27th. They need a minimum of 100 submissions to make this show work so they urge you to get them in as soon as possible. If there are not enough submissions to choose from, they will have to cancel the show. Pat really wants to give someone that $10,000 scholarship so he hopes the deadline extension accomplishes the job.

Pat would also like to remind you that you don't have to be America's Got Talent worthy. He just wants entertaining people. Your talent might be ridiculous but if you're entertaining and the judges enjoy your performance, It's very likely you'll make the finals.

You must submit the video clip of your talent here - https://www.moxychannel.com/u-got-it/
