2020 College Pick'em Week 3

Edward

Puritanboard Commissioner
Missed the first week? Feel free to jump in. No experience necessary.

Brief summary of the rules:
Every PBer in good standing can participate. You don’t have to be an American or even know the rules of college football to compete.
Pick the team you think can win – it’s a head to head competition, so you don’t have to worry about point spreads.


For the tiebreaker, you also have to pick the final score as well as the winner.

All picks have to be in before the kickoff of the first game of the week. Some weeks, like this one, that will be a Friday evening game.

This week, you have a second chance to pick the Oklahoma State – Tulsa game. And you won’t get a chance to pick between the cross state rivals of the big C teams in South Carolina, with Citadel giving a home field advantage to Clemson:

Tulsa at Oklahoma State
#19 Louisiana at Georgia State
Syracuse at #25 Pitt
Liberty at Western Kentucky
Navy at Tulane
Houston at Baylor
#14 UCF at Ga. Tech
SMU at North Texas
Florida Atlantic at Georgia Southern
Troy at Middle Tennessee
Central Arkansas at Arkansas State
Louisiana Tech at Southern Mississippi
Texas State at UL Monroe
Wake Forest at NC State

Tiebreaker – pick the winner and the final score
#17 Miami at # 18 Louisville

I'm going to wait another day for this weeks games - see what shakes out in the next 24 hours or so. But right now, it looks like we may see a couple of top 25 matchups. And the SEC joins in the action.

Please check the scores again as they're wildly inaccurate. Earl was tied with Ben at 10 and won by tiebreaker.

here is the correct score line

Earl 10* (by tiebreaker)
Ben D 10
Jean 9
Todd, TomVols 8
Lane 7
Ed M 6

Strange... I just went through the trouble of adding them up... I came up with me winning, but I got different results than either Edward or Todd: I show me with 11 wins and the next closest (Earl) with 9.

I'll let Todd and Edward sort it out.

Hi again -

Looks like I too missed something that Ben reminded me of... I thought the Louisiana Tech / Southern Miss game was over and so I recorded a win for Southern Miss that turns out to be wrong. Here's the corrected totals as I calculate it, and Ben indeed wins.

11 - Ben
9 - Earl
8 - Jean
7 - Todd, Tom, Edm
6 - Lane
