Default SCMB College Football Pick'em contest, bowl "week."

New to the Pick'ems?

Welcome to year five of our pick'em game! Everyone is welcome to give their picks. Simply select the team from the 10 featured games in each week's respective thread whom you think will win and list them in your post. For the selected tiebreaker game of the week(the tiebreaker), you must post the total combined score of the game in addition to the winning team. (Note that this emboldened part of it is different than last year).

Scoring

The first-place winner each week will receive 5 points, second-place 4 points, third-place 3 points, fourth-place 2 points, and all other entrants will receive 1 point. This encourages you to play each week because you are guaranteed to receive points for participation.

Final Notes

The deadline for posting your picks is before the kickoff of the earliest game listed. You may not post picks after any game in the pick'em has started as your selections will be disregarded. Furthermore, do not complain about the games selected there is nothing scientific or exact about it. The goal is to pick the 10 best, most competitive games, period. Post your picks here only, a separate thread will be opened each week for discussion and standings. There are no "extra" points for Bowl "week," even though there are more games to pick. With that said, good luck!
