TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Saturday was the second and final day of the American Cornhole Organization's Tupelo Major.

In year two of the Tupelo Major, entries doubled to 85 players from 10 states.

Players earned points towards July's World Championships of Cornhole in Las Vegas, Nevada.

ACO president and founder Frank Geers says Tupelo is quickly becoming a favorite stop on the tour.

'I like the buffalo roaming the town, and the fact that this is home of Elvis is awesome,' said Geers.  'The players that came here last year had a blast so word of mouth got out, plus we as an organization have been growing both nationally and internationally.'
