Ok, the first week is ready for action! Normally the first week of games offers mostly blowout affairs, but there's a somewhat bigger than normal mix this year of decent matchups (and some clunkers, but interesting clunkers). Here they are - again, recall, you need to pick all 15 winners, all of which will count for a best-out-of-15 total for each player.
The last game, labelled TIEBREAKER, also requires you to predict the score of the game.

Deadline for picks is 18:00 Central Daylight Time, THURSDAY, August 29, 2019.

ALL TIMES GIVEN ARE CENTRAL DAYLIGHT TIME

A wild back-and-forth affair this one was as the games rolled in! A familiar face sits atop the leaderboard when all was said and done. Edward, congratulations, winning on the last tiebreaker (first entry received with otherwise exactly tied results) over Edm.

One thing this week's results remind us of is making sure you don't miss a pick. Edm's ballot was missing a result for Tulane-FIU, and this might have made a difference. Please do doublecheck that you've entered a result for every game!

Final scores for Week 1:

10: Edward :flamingscot:
10: Edm
8: Earl40
8: Green Baggins
8: Henry Hall
7: Backwoods Presbyterian
7: Sola Scriptura
7: toddpedlar

The slate of games for Week 2 will be posted later this morning.
