Last week, Nightly News profiled Yale University quarterback Patrick Witt, who faced a tough choice. On Nov. 19, Witt could either lead Yale against arch rival Harvard University in New Haven, Conn., or he could interview for the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship in his hometown of Atlanta.
More than 20,000 of you voted in our poll. Fifty-eight percent of voters said Witt should choose the Rhodes interview over the football game. But Yale University now reports Witt has withdrawn his application for the scholarship and will be playing against Harvard on Saturday.
"My focus this week is solely on preparing for the Game alongside my teammates and coaches," said Witt, as quoted on Yale's football page.
What is your reaction to Witt's decision?
