      Students Host 'Presidential Throwdown' Before Debate Monday

      Lynchburg, VA - Ahead of Monday night's last presidential debate, students at Lynchburg College held an event to grab everyone's attention on campus.

      It's called a "Presidential Throwdown". In two locations Monday morning, students wore Obama and Romney masks for a pretend fight in a boxing ring then "fought" about issues like gun control and energy.

      "We're just trying to get students hyped up. A lot of people will register to vote, but they won't actually go out to the polls on November 6, so this is just kind of a fun motivational event to try to get them excited about it," said Megan Hunt, a student.

      Lynchburg College's Bonner Leader students planned the event.
