GRIDIRON PICK'EM -- 2017-2018 BOWLS EDITION

Post by AGinNEIowa » December 3rd, 2017, 5:50 pm

WELCOME TO BOWL PICK'EM! This year I am again including the FCS Bowl - SWAC vs MEAC champions face off in the Celebration Bowl, so we have 40 Bowls plus a Championship Game, and all 41 games are on the board.
Picks for the 40 Bowls and the Tiebreaker must be made before the first bowl kickoff - 10:00am on Saturday 16 December. The worksheet and this thread will be locked at about 10:15am. After the Sugar Bowl, the Championship Game participants are decided, the thread and worksheet will be unlocked for choosing the championship game.

GOOD LUCK, and HAVE FUN!

Preferred Entry method - Enter your Picks on GOOGLE DOCS, USUFANS.com 2017-18 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).
