    All PBers in good standing can play. For the rules, see the first two weeks of this season. No point spreads involved – just pick the winner of each game, and in addition, pick the final score of the tiebreaker. Five matchups between ranked teams this week. Sorry, no Ragin’ Cajuns against the Tide. But two Michigan teams this week.

    12 West Virginia at 25 Texas Tech 11:00
    Western Michigan at Miami (Ohio) 2:30
    Texas at Kansas State 2:30
    Purdue at Nebraska 2:30
    Florida State at Louisville 2:30
    Michigan at Northwestern 3:30
    Arkansas State at Georgia Southern 5:00
    Northern Ill at Eastern Michigan 5:00
    Virginia Tech at 22 Duke 6:00

    Wow. Only one game different from me. Even the games in which I went against the oddsmakers, you have the same opinion as me. Huh.

    To be honest, I don’t put a lot of thought into these picks and I just kind of go with my gut, so I didn’t even look at your picks before I made mine. Perhaps this is just a case of great minds thinking alike.

    I'm happy (for now) with the games I put up - there wasn't a single matchup where everyone picked the same team.

    I am happy you are not playing. :)

    Except the Kansas State v Texas game - but otherwise, yeah.

    And Louisville's QB simply threw the game away. Boo. :(

    Glad you spoke up - for some reason I had you down for KState - I'll fix the grid.

    Interesting that, as Ben pointed out, our picks were exactly the same except for one, and yet somehow Ben got two more games correct than I did. Impressive indeed.

    Well, he is a Presbyterian.

    Change made.

    Now that’s funny. I was mostly just trying to pick at Ben in light of his pointing out the similarity of our picks. Apparently I was on the right track since he gets bonus points :lol:

    He didn't get a bonus point. You got assessed a penalty point.
