We couldn't let a college football season go by without a Pick'em contest, right? No. No, we could not. Fortunately, our friendly neighborhood blog buddy MNWildcat put together a pool on Yahoo that we're going to piggyback on this year. It feels good to make a Northwestern man do the labor for once.
The game is at Yahoo -- College Football Pick'em

The game uses the Top 25 games as well as all Big Ten games. No confidence picks, but you ARE picking against the spread. So for instance Stanford is presently listed as a 14.5 point favorite (-14.5) -- that means if you pick Stanford in their game versus Kansas State, you not only need Stanford to win, but you need them to win by 15 or more points. Otherwise, you lose the match-up.
The first game is FRIDAY, so get your picks in.
Join up! The winner at the end of the season will win... well, something. I have to work on that.
