Scott Nelsen Named the 2023 Chili Champ at Dining Services’s Annual Chili Cookoff Fundraiser

There may be some new hardware in the University Athletics trophy case after Scott Nelsen’s chili concoction, Nelly’s Tailgating Trio, claimed the traveling trophy as the top vote-getter in Wednesday’s annual Chili Cook-off. Partly responsible for the win were Scott’s Cheez-its toppings seasoned in a smoker. Hosted by University Dining, the chili fundraiser supports Stop Hunger efforts. For $2 or a unperishable food item, participants could sample four chili recipes. Other samplings were offered by the CSU, Kearney International Center and Campus Dietitian. The event raised 285 pounds of food, and $435. Scott is the Senior Associate Athletic Director/Marketing & Communications for the Mavericks.
