Smoking Musket College Pick 'Em Gauntlet Week Seven Results, Plus Staff Predictions For Texas A&M vs. Ole Miss

Join in on the fun picking the winners each week. Overall winner at the end of the year will win a Nike shirt. We also have the staff predictions for this week's Texas A&M vs Ole Miss game since WVU is off this weekend.

The Smoking Musket Pick Em Gauntlet is an online college pick 'em game where we will try to pick the winners of the weekly Big 12 contests plus Yahoo! editors' selected games (usually the games involving the top 25 teams). We do pick against the spread (when available). There are usually 20-30 games to pick each week and each correct pick is worth one point. The winner (excluding Musket staff) will be the person at the end of the regular season who has the most correct picks/points. Points are cumulative, so don't worry if you happen to miss a week or two. We will award the winner a WVU Nike T-shirt at the conclusion of the games in December.

All participants are subject to the Official Rules (PDF document link) as determined by SB Nation.

In the case of a tie at the end, the winner will be determined by who "won" the most weeks, head to head with the other folks tied. Coin flip will be used in case that method not resolving the issue..

Our game, as in the past, will be hosted by Yahoo! Fantasy. GAME LINK

We have 20 games to pick this week, starting with games at 8 pm ET Friday. Deadline for each pick is 5 minutes before kickoff.

Here are the top performers (top 11 and ties) from week 7. Congratulations to Smitty, JP Fanshawe, WVRichie & Macker605 for winning week 6 (all you win for this is kudos).

We will once again also be featuring staff predictions for the weekly WVU game (or game of interest on the off-weeks). Without further adieu (in order of staff ranking, number correct in parentheses):

Tie usually goes to the home field, but in this case Ole Miss just got beat by two scores by one of the three undefeated AAC teams.

Admiral Akbar was right, it's a trap!

Ole Miss 28

After last weekends debacle in Memphis, Ole Miss looks to prove they are still worthy as a perennial power in the SEC and the nation.

No good reason, but I'm going with the Ags on this one.

Ole Miss 17
Texas A&M 35

Both teams come into this week deflated, so it's tough to predict the mindset of either side. That being said, I think the A&M defensive line is far and away the best unit in this game and give Ole Miss fits all night long.

No real reasoning behind this one, it just feels right.

My real prediction is that this is a great weekend to get yard work done, catch up on some errands, or (my personal favorite) play 36 holes of golf. Saturday's schedule is brutal.

Texas A&M 24
Ole Miss 31

I won't lie. I haven't watched much A&M or Ole Miss (other than the Bama beat down), so I'm going with my gut on this one.

Ole Miss gets redemption for last week's loss to Memphis.

Think of an A&M world without turnovers unlike last Saturday against Alabama. They can put up points on any defense and have shown consistency in that. Oh and this Saturday it's a world without do it all Mississippi DE Robert Nkimdeche.
