Here's our weekly pick 'em contest that runs the length of the season. Jump in if you haven't yet, it's never too late.

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Here's this week's slate of games to pick (POINT SPREADS MATTER):

  • Ohio St. @ Michigan St. (-3)
  • Texas Tech @ Iowa St. (+2.5)
  • Texas @ Oklahoma St. (+3)
  • Wisconsin @ Nebraska (-12)
  • Oregon St. @ Arizona (-2.5)
  • Baylor @ West Virginia (-13)

This contest runs the length of the football season and the winner (we will award a Nike WVU T-shirt) is based on total picks correct over the season. So, if you missed any of the previous weeks, jump (back) in on the action this week.

Picks are due by Noon Saturday.

Much better week by the group as a whole, but still nobody was perfect. Country Roads and FreeState_EER came the closest with 5 right each. Here are your leaderboard and staff picks:
