Good luck to you all. As for me, I feel pretty good about this match up this week:
Stanford over Colorado
If Oregon can put up 70 versus Colorado, surely Stanford can put up 50.
Things have gotten really bad for Colorado. People were saying that Oregon could have put up 100 on them last week if they wanted to and I believe it. I'm hoping Stanford does what they do best and just punishes Colorado into submission and this can be an easy win for me.
Nick was eliminated in Week Four

Stanford over Colorado
I thought Eliminator was going to get really hard toward the end of the year, but then I discovered that most of the Eliminator teams play either Colorado or Colorado State, so no worries! I'm going with Stanford over the Buffs this week. The Cardinal may not be the type of team to put up a 70 burger against CU, but they are the type of team that is talented, well-coached, and disciplined - foreign concepts to this year's iteration of Colorado.
Kevan was eliminated in Week Two.
Previous Kevan picks: Air Force, UNLV, Washington State, Utah State, Nevada, Fresno State, San Diego State, Louisiana Tech, Oregon
Seriously, Washington? It's bad enough you gagged against Arizona and ended my eliminator win streak, but you had to go and make me look foolish last weekend by beating Oregon State. Are you good or are you bad? Why you gotta kick a guy while he's down?
Utah State over Texas State
Utah State is a legitimately good team this year. Second look at 2012 being the end of the world?
Drew was eliminated in Week Eight and again in Week Nine.
Previous Drew picks: Stanford, TCU, Oregon, Boise State, Fresno State, Louisiana Tech, San Diego State, Washington, Oregon State
The OBNUG Eliminator challenge is open to anyone and everyone who knows how to use a Google document or begs us really hard in the comments to use a Google document for them.
One big rule: You can't pick the same team twice.
Additional rules are 1) don't cheat and screw with the spreadsheet, 2) make your picks before your game starts, 3) keep playing as long as you want after you pick wrong. All other rules are meaningless to the extent that I cannot remember them now.
Winner gets a free Deuce Brand watch.
