OBNUG Pick 'Em Contest: Eliminator picks for Week Seven

We are into week 7 and we only have 11 people standing with perfect records. Well done, you guys. This week gets a little harder, though, as your list of eligible teams to pick is getting smaller and the games are getting more competitive.

I've looked over the match ups this week and they aren't favorable to me but I'm taking this one to the bank. Hopefully they'll cash out.

San Diego State over Colorado State

I'm running out of teams to pick.

ELIMINATOR: Come play games with us!

Well, this week sucks. I'm going to put my faith in San Diego State to take out Colorado State and it makes me queasy. I mean San Diego State lost to San Jose State for crying out loud. However, all my other options are too evenly matched for my liking.

Nick was eliminated in Week Four

Previous Nick picks: Utah, TCU, Washington, Air Force, BYU, Nevada



San Diego State over Colorado State

I am surprised at how few gimme games there are this week. It's the perfect storm of good teams playing good teams and bad teams playing bad teams. For my money, the biggest disparity is between the Aztecs and the Rams - and really, the Rams and anyone at this point. I picked against Colorado State last week, and I'll pick against them again this week. (And I would pick against them next week, too, if Idaho weren't playing LaTech.)

Kevan was eliminated in Week Two.

Previous Kevan picks: Air Force, UNLV, Washington State, Utah State, Nevada, Fresno State



San Diego State over Colorado State

When Colorado State defeated CU earlier this season, many thought that CSU had turned things around in Fort Collins. That was before we knew that CU was a magnificent trainwreck. CSU can hang around, but don't have the firepower to overtake San Diego State.

Previous Drew picks: Stanford, TCU, Oregon, Boise State, Fresno State, Louisiana Tech


Wanna play?

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.

Enter your weekly pick into the Eliminator form.

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.

Pick. Survive. Gloat. Enjoy.


We will be playing this for 14 weeks so we have selected a list of 20 teams to pick from. These include all Mountain West teams as well as a selection of regional teams and, for those who love making bad decisions, Idaho.
