There was an entire flock of folks who tied for second in this week's picks contest, but Pingswinger26 avoided the need for tiebreakers by inching out a one point victory.
FTC disclosure: This contest is sponsored by Gameday Depot and SB Nation.
Pro tip: When you submit your picks, make sure you not only allocate your confidence points the way you want them, but also choose the winner you mean to choose. I lost 18 points this week because I somehow missed clicking the button to flip from Washington to USC. That's right 18 points on a 12.5 point underdog. Accidentally. Woo for me. It's like I forgot to catch a kickoff or something. Anyway . . .
. . . Pingswinger26 wins this week's Rocky Top Talk 2012 Picks Contest. $10 gift certificate for you, good sir or lady. You can choose whether the certificate applies toward (1) officially licensed Tennessee Volunteer hoodies, jackets, t-shirts and more at the Rocky Top Talk licensed store or (2) custom tees at the Rocky Top Talk custom store. Those Dooley 2012 custom tees may be collector's items soon!
So Pingswinger26, look for a confirmation email with instructions on how to claim your prize. If you don't respond within three business days, the rules require us to award the prize to the next person on the list.
There is still a $50 gift certificate up for grabs to whoever finishes first for the entire season, so keep playing.
