Can you believe we are finally on the home stretch to the season? We less than a week away from another season of roller coaster emotions known as college football. And while that means another nausea inducing opening game for Boise State this Saturday, it's also pretty exciting.
It also means that it's time for OBNUG's annual Pick Em Contest. We've experimented with some different formats in the past few years like our survivor style Eliminator contest last year or just plain having everyone pick their games in the comments. But this year, the tides have changed and now Yahoo Sports recognizes The Mountain West as a worthy conference. Actually the Sun Belt is in there too, so scratch that last part.
How it works
We'll be using ESPN's Fantasy site to do the pick em again this year. It's a pretty simple setup of picking the winner of each game each week, straight up, but adds the wrinkle or ordering them in the confidence you have in each pick.
It doesn't offer as many options as Yahoo's, but also doesn't cap the group size at 100.
