2019 MAC Football Pick ‘Em: Week 0 Results

Yesterday was great, wasn’t it?

Football was back and both games were nuts. Miami-Florida made up for all the flags that couldn’t make it to College Gameday (exception: Ol Crimson), then one yard was the difference between Hawai’i’s upset over Arizona and taking the 10 p.m. kickoff into overtime.

Thanks to everybody (19 of yous) that played in the Week 0 introduction. And for those to didn’t play last week and want to, feel free to jump in tomorrow when the Week 1 Pick ‘Em goes live. Every Sunday I’ll post the results from the weekly Pick ‘Ems, then Monday I’ll have the new picks go live. Adjust your calendars accordingly.
