It's a mainstay of backyard and tailgate parties, and for the third year in a row, it's the source of cash prizes.More than 1,000 people were competing Saturday in the third annual Soldier Field Cornhole Classic.

Last year's champion, Matt Guy, was there to defend his title.

Organizers say the event is the largest tournament of its kind in the Midwest. Players competed for $4,000 in cash prizes, and the competition wrapped up at 6 p.m. Saturday.
