2011 Pick 'Em Gauntlet: Week 2

New, 20 comments

Put your prognostication hats back on.  There's a new slate of games to pick this week.  The line for the WVU/Norfolk St. game is off, so we're going with 6 other games this week.

  • Mississippi St. @ Auburn (+6.5)
  • Rutgers @ UNC (-10)
  • Alabama @ Penn St. (+10)
  • Cincinnati @ Tennessee (-6)
  • BYU @ Texas (-7)
  • Notre Dame @ Michigan(+3.5)

This contest runs the length of the football season and the winner (we have prizes) is based on total picks correct over the season.  So if you missed last week, don't fret, jump in on the action this week.  Picks (in the comments section) are due by Noon EDT, Saturday.

Our resident degenerate gambler, JP Fanshawe (who was shut-out last week, I might add), informed us that if a game doesn't go 55 minutes, the bets are refunded.  Therefore all selections involving the WVU/Marshall game last week are null and void.  Out of 19 commenter entries and the 6 staff members, only one person managed to pick all five remaining games correctly.  CGMounty is your leader in the clubhouse after one week.
