Well this was quite the week for the Pick ‘Em. We’ve got new kids throwing elbows this week, a longtime Pick ‘Em member has one of its better weeks, and …
… where am-
|USERNAME||WEEK 9 PTS|
Good on you, Stogie13, whose 27 points was the best of anybody this week. You’ve only joined us four times since Week 5, but I’m happy to have you here putting on a clinic for us.
Also in the 20+ point club this week: Mr. 69, BenRUdrunkyet, Nathan8848, ColinApocalypse, Mhuppsurvey, and Toledo Seahawks.
Looking at the league standings, we’ve got a tie at the top! Fitz let ColinApocalypse catch up to 183 points each. I slipped with a poor week and now Mr. 69 is the new fifth-placer for the Pick ‘Em. at 166 points.

THREE POINTS: Which MAC QB will not throw an INT this weekend?
As you’ve noticed, there was an option for “OTHER”, which doesn’t make sense at all. The reason why that was there is because Google Forms will add in a new option for me when I fill these things out and “OTHER” is always the default text that goes there. This is one of those times where I didn’t catch it until after picks starting coming in.
So, I don’t care how you picked. Three points to everybody!
THREE POINTS: Write-in two (2) MAC defender who will tally at least 1.5 TFL each this weekend. Gotta get them both.
Nobody was able to write in two players to record at least 1.5 TFL each on Saturday.
Here’s all the MAC players that were able to do that: WMU’s Tre Hayward (3.0), WMU’s Tim Collins (2.0), Ohio’s Keye Thompson (1.5), CMU’s Troy Brown (2.0), Buffalo’s Taylor Riggins, Toledo’s DeDarallo Blue (1.5), Miami’s Myles Reid (2.0), Miami’s Ben Kimpler (2.0), Miami’s Sterling Weatherford (1.5), Kent State’s Dominic Hill (3.0), Kent State’s Cepeda Phillips (2.0), Kent State’s Quantrezz Knight (2.0), and Kent State’s Keith Sherald Jr. (1.5).
SIX POINTS: Pick six more winners in these select 10 non-MACtion games. Gotta get them all right.
Nobody got it all right this week. It was a tough one, considering that nobody picked TCU to win, only one person picking Indiana, and a disturbing number of you liked Liberty more than Rutgers.

- 12- Ohio State 38, Wisconsin 7
