2019 MAC Football Pick ‘Em: Week 3 Results

Last week’s Pick ‘Em must have been pretty difficult for all of you to let a person like me come away with the most points gained on Saturday. And for that, I thank you.

First, here’s the Week 3 leaderboard, which starts off with yours truly getting 27 points, followed by ColinApocalypse with 20, then Justin C/E-Scruff/Karp all coming in with 19 apiece.

Some new names on this list too. Welcome aboard Freeab, Jimmy Miller, Toledo Seahawks, and JWILLZ2020. Keep playing and maybe you’ll leapfrog some other people that have been in here since Week 0. (Just not me, please.)
