Well, the first Saturday is in the books. Gamecock came out of the gate fast, and was the only player to pick all five games correctly. Huskypride and RutgersGuy came close, getting four correct.

If you had a bad week, don't panic. Collectively, the 25 players in the contest started out under water, picking a little over 45% of the games correctly.

I'll post the complete standings through the Hawaii Bowl on Christmas Eve. There should be some separation of the field after 14 games.

I went 2-3 yesterday, so I've already separated myself from the leaders, LOL.

I guess not having to worry about your team playing a bowl game gives an added dose of objectivity to the picking?

Just kidding - nice start. 04-cheers

Well hopefully we will make a bowl next year lol. Honestly yeah... half of my wrong picks in our aac pickem we're because I always picked UConn no matter what. Hoping that they would win...and as you guessed they didn't.

RE: 2017 Bowl Pickem is now open
One third of the games are in the books, and some of our pickers have risen to the top. Gamecock, RutgersGuy and Wilkie01 share the lead, with a sterling 10-3 performance so far. ChrisLords is right on their tail at 9-4.

The full standings are:

Gamecock............10
RutgersGuy..........10
Wilkie01..............10
ChrisLords ...........9
chargeradio..........8
GTFletch..............8
Huskypride...........8
copycat................7
lofi......................7
tcufrog86.............7
TyBull..................7
BadgerMJ.............6
Bigtexnole............6
Cyniclone.............6
Erictelevision........6
IWokeUpLikethis...6
TerpsNPhoenix......6
TerryD.................6
4x4hokies............5
billybobby777.......5
dbackjon..............5
MWC Tex..............4
quo vadis.............4
RandomFan..........4
TripleA.................4

Collectively, our record so far is 164-161. While that doesn't sound so great, keep in mind that the oddsmakers are 6-7 straight up. Seven underdogs didn't just cover the spread, they won outright. So we aren't doing so bad.

For those closer to the bottom of the standings than the top, take heart. There are still 26 games to be played, and there is no momentum in this game. You could just as easily be the ones to get 9 or 10 wins in the next third. I'll update the standings after the games on the 28th.

Good luck in the next round. May your Christmas wishes come true.

That should tell you zero cheating was still nowhere near my predictions.

With a run of 8 straight correct picks, lofi has pulled into a tie with Gamecock, RutgersGuy and Wilkie01, all with a record of 15-6 after yesterday's games.

Just as important, there are now 15 players within 4 wins of the lead with 18 games to go. Still anybody's ball game.

I'm afraid my streak may be running out of steam. I'm not too confident of my picks for the remaining 3 games today (VT, Stanford, MSU).
Much thanks to Ken D for keeping count.
