Predict the score: Boise State vs. Portland State

NCAA Football: Portland State at Arkansas Brett Rojo-USA TODAY Sports

Last week’s game was something else, eh? Defense played lights out. Let’s hope the offense can get over some of their woes

Here are the rules:

  • Guess the actual score as close as you can (obviously) but in the event that no one gets the score 100% correct, we are going to go with how close you guys were. Without going over.

What does that mean?

Let’s say the score was Boise State wins 17-10. Person A had 17-13 and Person B had 17-7. Both had Boise State’s score, but whiffed a little on the opposing score. But both were within three of the opposing score. The person who had the guess of 7 wins because that person did not go over.

  • The tiebreakers will go in order below. Again, as close to the actual tiebreaker as possible, even going over. In the unlikely even that the winner isn’t resolved after those, we are going to the ultimate winner: time. I will look at the time stamp and whoever posted first gets the nod.
  • Always choose the Broncos to win. No matter the odds. Picking against the Broncos risks a lifetime ban. I’m kidding of course. But seriously.

Tiebreakers:

  • Khalil Shakir receptions
  • Kekoa Nawahine tackles
  • Eric Sachse PATs (figured I would get it right this time.)

What do I get if I win?

Self-satisfaction that you’re better than everyone else

What about the Marshall predict the score?

Boise State won 14-7.

Man. I can’t in good conscience declare anyone victorious on last week’s. No one came within two touchdowns (plus PATs of course) of what the Broncos scored. Either we fans were suuuuuper confident, or the Broncos were sandbagging (hoping more for the latter, obvs). At any rate: let’s do a little better guys. Oh and JupiterBronco 2007, for calling for the upset, has been banned permanently (I’m kidding, but seriously).

Your turn

Have a go. And better this time you guys.
