    Default Bowl "Pick-Ems" Warmup: The Championship Games

    Alright folks, it's almost that time of year!... For those that were over at the other board last year, maybe you remember me doing the "College Bowl Pick-Ems Extravaganza"... Well, I will be doing it again this season, and will once again be offering a prize to the winner of that competition... More on that later after the matchups have been made...

    ... But consider this a "warm-up" for it all... This is a pick-ems competition for the Championship games this coming weekend... A "one shot, winner takes all" to prove your college football prowess.

    Since there are really only 3 big championship games I've added a few others to put the total number of games at 10... And a further test of your prognostication abilities.

    The tiebreaker will be the early game this Thursday... Oregon St at Oregon (9pm Thursday), and total points in this game... You must make your picks before then (kickoff) so as to be ellegible for the tiebreaker.

    All other picks must be made by 12 noon on Saturday (date stamp on your post).

    Here are the games to be used....

    Thursday, December 3:
    9:00 PM ET... No. 16 Oregon State at No. 7 Oregon

    Saturday, December 5:
    12:00 PM ET... No. 5 Cincinnati at No. 15 Pittsburgh
    12:00 PM ET... No. 23 West Virginia at Rutgers
    12:30 PM ET... Fresno State at Illinois
    3:30 PM ET... Arizona at No. 18 USC
    4:00 PM ET... No. 1 Florida vs. No. 2 Alabama
    6:30 PM ET... No. 19 California at Washington
    8:00 PM ET... No. 3 Texas vs. No. 22 Nebraska
    8:00 PM ET... No. 10 Georgia Tech vs. Clemson
    8:00 PM ET... South Florida at Connecticut
    11:30 PM ET... Wisconsin at Hawaii

    Please use the template below for your picks. Just as you would do in the NFL pick-ems competition.... You can view my picks in the second post here for direction in this.... It just makes it easier to tally... Thanx!

    By the way, if anyone is talking to Ranrod, pleast tell him to get over here!....

    ..... Good luck, everyone!

    Oregon State at Oregon

    Cincinnati at Pittsburgh
    West Virginia at Rutgers
    Fresno State at Illinois
    Arizona at USC
    Florida vs. Alabama
    California at Washington
    Texas vs. Nebraska
    Georgia Tech vs. Clemson
    South Florida at Connecticut
    Wisconsin at Hawaii

    .... Oregon won, and the total score was 70 (Kipper nailed it exactly).... But that was only for the tiebreaker.... So let's see what happens with the 10 games on Saturday....

    I'm impressed with yunz warming up for the Bowl Pickems.
    I guess some of us need more practice than others.

    The "Bowl Selection Show" is this Sunday evening (8pm on ESPN)... The actual contest thread should be up by Monday or so....

    Alright, even though the last game (Wisc at Hawaii) has not finished, it doesn't matter since EVERYONE picked Wisconsin... So here are the tallies with the tiebreaker game and total points determining the rankings.... It is a total of 9 games since everyone picked the final game identically.

    Thanx for participating folks.... The actual "Bowl Pick-Ems Extravaganza" will be posted soon, and I hope everyone participates once again... The Bowl selection show is on ESPN at 8pm Sunday night, and hopefully I'll get the Bowl Pick-ems thread posted by Monday evening or shortly thereafter.

    I hope we get many more folks participating in the contest, so please feel free to pimp it so as to garner more interest....

    You were closer than you though. We all sort of sucked. 5-4 was the best that we could accomplish
