Late Rule Amendment: Liberty Bowl has been updated, but going forward any changes will be treated as cancellations.

Well, the bowl games start today, but I don't think most folks can get their picks in in the next couple of hours, so the first game in the contest will be the December 26 bowl games. And the rules will be closer to the 2018 rules (under which Todd won) than the 2019 rules (under which I won).

1 point for the minor games.
2 ponits for the Big Six NOTE: Final scores for the playoff games for tiebreaking purposes
4 points for the "National Championship" picked blind
First tiebreaker - score in the Championship game
Second Tiebreaker - Surgar Bowl score
Third Tiebreaker - Rose Bowl at JerryWorld Score
Fourth tiebreaker - number of games on the list cancelled.

I decided against the bonus points since we're working with fewer games - some of which might not even make it to kick-off.

Just in: Army is taking Tennessee’s spot versus West Virginia in the Liberty Bowl.
All: feel free to change your picks through December 24 (for TRs) / Christmas Eve for us liberals. Note rule change. After the Liberty Bowl, changes in teams will be deemed cancellations.

A&M should have been in the playoff.
I'm an Irish fan but I don't believe we deserve to be there. All we had to do to make a case was not get the doors blown off in the ACC Championship game. I wish we weren't in it since it's just going to be another national embarrassment for ND.

Um... hedging your bets with Clemson losing in the Sugar bowl and winning the championship? Director?

If Clemson scores 34 in the Sugar Bowl and Ohio State scores 28 in the game, I'm giving that win to Clemson, not An Ohio state university. Or did I drink too much Christkindl Glühwein this evening?

oh good grief. Apparently I did (though I didnt!). Carry on :)

With the national championship game still to be decided, the points may change, but the results won't. Tally, including the traditional bonus points:

Ben 16 + 5 bonus points for weekly wins = 21, and the new Champion.
Todd 14 + 3 bonus points = 17
Edward 16 + 1 bonus point = 17
Ed M 15 + 1 bonus point = 16
Earl 14 + 1 bonus point = 15
Lane 14 + 1 bonus point = 15

I know we are all disappointed in Clemson choking against an Ohio state university, depriving us of a fight to the finish. And if Bama wins, the points will be updated, and there may be some changes in the final order (but Ben will remain the champion)

Thanks guys!

Hats off to Edward for putting together a good season despite all the unique challenges.

More info will be forthcoming about the 2021 PB College Football Pick’em, but for now let’s enjoy the Championship game. And since it doesn’t matter anyway, I can express my hope that Ohio State stuns Alabama like they did Clemson! Go Buckeyes!
