The first five voting rounds began a week ago, with one vote per round per match-ups divided in locations: West, East, Midwest and the South. Oxford made it past the first round with a triumph over Alpine, Texas with 51.38 percent of the votes.
The second round of voting began this past Saturday and will go on until Wednesday. Oxford is up against Athens, Georgia. As of this morning at 10:55 a.m. Athens is ahead of Oxford with 2,589 votes over Oxford’s 1,098 votes.
