Welcome back for the results of week 1 of OBNUG's Pick 'Em Contest. Thanks to all who participated. We had 38 entries. I'd say that's a pretty good chance at free Baja Fresh.
Join me after the jump for the results along with some interesting observations.
Did you know?
The fewest points guessed for the total points between Oregon and Boise State was 44 by both xXBroncoNarionXx and J-Stat?
Further breakdown of the total points guesses:
- 40's: 4
- 50's: 8
- 60's: 18
- 70's: 7
I think it's safe to say no one saw a low scoring game coming, even a bunch of homers.
The Ironic Entry of the Week
This goes to the user named duc. He was an unlucky 1-8 this week. His one win? Boise State.

So, how did Kevan do? Let's just say he had a rough start going 3-6 this week. That's good for a tie of 4th worst selection so far. But he so nailed the Utah State game.
The game that was our downfall and revealed our true wishes for this season
So, about that Nevada-Notre Dame game? Astonishingly 32 of us picked Nevada. This tells me one of two things. Either we really, really hate Notre Dame or we really hope Nevada could be good and help Boise State out. Maybe a little of both.

Thanks, KyleC, for your unwavering faith in Oregon to cover. And, you're right, we didn't need your tiebreaker guess but it was still amusing nonetheless:
I probably don’t need a tie breaker since all you homers have Boise, but here it is: 76 points (mostly Duck points, of course)
That was tied for the most points in the tiebreaker question, by the way.
Of course, we're homers
The Boise State game? 36 entries picked Boise State to cover with only 2 opting for Oregon. KyleC, was right. We are homers but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
And the winner is...
The winner of week 1 and free Baja Fresh is J-Stat's astonishing entry of 8-1. His only miss was the Nevada - Notre Dame game. Can't blame him for that.
Stay tuned, we'll be posting week 2's list of games with another chance and free Baja Fresh.
