2011 Pick 'Em Gauntlet: Week 8

New, 22 comments

Since WVU plays on Friday this week, picks are due early.  Here's this week's slate of games to pick (POINT SPREADS MATTER)

  • West Virginia @ Syracuse (+14)

  • Cincinnati @ South Florida (-3)

  • Maryland @ Florida St (-17)

  • Auburn @ LSU (-21.5)

  • Washington @ Stanford (-21)

  • Wisconsin @ Michigan State (+7)

This contest runs the length of the football season and the winner (we will award prizes, most likely a Nike WVU hat or T-shirt) is based on total picks correct over the season.  So if you missed any of the previous weeks, don't worry, it's a long season so jump (back) in on the action this week. 

Picks are due by 8pm ET, Friday.

Oregon and Arizona St. was a push last week so 5 was the best anyone could do.  With that, only 2 were perfect last week, myself and Mountaineer Chuckdawg'eer8488 is still the overall leader (42 pickers so far).  Staff picks and the leaderboard are after the jump...
