JONESBORO (KAIT) - Arkansas State has been the talk of the college football world in the past 7 days. From CBS, ESPN's Darren Rovell, and even Times Square, the A-State Auction on eBay has captured the imagination and plenty of eyeballs.

25-year-old entrepreneur Nick Bhardwaj bid $11,700 to win the auction. He'll coach the Red Wolves Friday in their annual Spring Game. Bhardwaj is the founder and CEO of Beyond Games. The company develops video games for smartphones and tablets.

The entrepreneur showed his excitement on twitter Monday afternoon. Bhardwaj said "Amazing opportunity to learn from Blake Anderson" and "Once in a lifetime experience. Now just need to go down as the only undefeated coach in NCAA football history."

He will fly from San Francisco to Jonesboro on Wednesday.
