The Smoking Musket College Pick ‘Em Gauntlet Is Back

Our annual pick 'em game is back! Play along to win a Nike West Virginia t-shirt.

NCAA Football: Georgia Southern at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

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 as determined by SB Nation.

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

We will have 30 games to pick as we kick off Week 1 of the college football season, starting with games next Friday night - August 31st at 7:00 PM ET, continuing through to Monday’s matchup between the Florida State Seminoles and Virginia Tech Hokies. Deadline for each pick is 5 minutes before kickoff.
