The challenge has been a social media favorite in recent weeks, with notables ranging from Justin Timberlake to Ethel Kennedy participating. In order to accept the challenge, one needs to pour ice water over their head and nominate three other people.
Bret Bielema nominated UA athletics director Jeff Long and SEC Network hosts Paul Finebaum and Joe Tessitore. Jen Bielema, who was challenged by country music artist and Arkansas native Justin Moore, nominated Moore's wife Kate, KNWA-TV anchor Neile Jones and members of the University of Arkansas Tri-Delta sorority for the challenge.
