“On the 25th anniversary of the first 2-point conversion during the big game, BankUnited is celebrating those who go for more in their personal and professional lives,” said Rajinder P. Singh, chairman, president & CEO. “The cash prize is a good incentive for people to dream big and imagine what goals they could accomplish with $54,000. Donating the prize to a non-profit, if there isn’t a successful 2-point conversion, will allow that organization to go for more this year.”

The Big Game’s first successful 2-point conversion came in 1995 at what was then Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami. The most recent successful 2-point conversion during the Big Game was in 2017. During that 25-year span, there have been 10 successful 2-point conversions in nine Big Games.
