TEN POINTS: Name 10 more FBS programs (not in the MAC) that will win their games on Saturday. (write-in)

  • If you picked nine games correctly, but included Tennessee in your 10, you received zero points. This is mostly an all-or-nothing endeavor
  • Some people thought they were slick and picked Iowa, even though they played a MAC team. In this, I said “10 more FBS programs (not in the MAC) that will win their games…” which I guess I technically didn’t rule Iowa out, but we all know you’re just double-dipping points here, since you already got the Iowa-Miami picks right. I respect you all shooting your shots, but I’m capping the few of you that did this at seven points instead of 10.
  • We’re still waiting on Oklahoma vs. Houston tonight and Notre Dame vs. Louisville tomorrow.
  • Somebody included the Week 0 games in Week 1 winners? I don’t know why, but I’ll let you have three points max.

For the most part, everybody’s write-in selections were right (Alabama over Duke, Clemson over Georgia Tech, etch.) but these three games tripped a few people up:

  • North Carolina over South Carolina
  • Georgia State over Tennessee
  • Boise State over Florida State
  • Notre Dame over Louisville

Of the 16 pickers this week, nine received a full 10 points and one received 7 points. Congrats to Fitz, Da_Gerd, E-Scruff, jk52, Huron Boy, me, ColinApocalypse, Karp, Robert Tomlinson, and Mr. 69 for the extra points in this round!

Stay tuned tomorrow morning for when the Week 2 picks go live!
