GRIDIRON PICK'EM -- 2016-2017 BOWLS EDITION

Post by AGinNEIowa » December 7th, 2016, 11:00 pm

WELCOME TO BOWL PICK'EM! This year we have 41 Bowls plus a Championship Game, and all 42 games are on the board.
Picks for the 41 Bowls and the Tiebreaker must be made before the first bowl kickoff - 10:00am on Saturday 17 December. The worksheet and this thread will be locked at about 10:15am. After the Championship Game participants are decided, the thread and worksheet will be unlocked for choosing that game only. Any changes to remaining games or tiebreaker will not be accepted.

GOOD LUCK, and HAVE FUN!

Preferred Entry method - Enter your Picks on GOOGLE DOCS, USUFANS.com 2016-17 BOWL PICK'EM sheet

Secondary Entry method - reply to this thread with each game picked (either retype game # and team - or copy/paste the games and bold the winner - prefer bold, rather than just colors, easier to read).
