Congrats to rockhopper78, who dominated the competition last week with an 18-2 mark with no one else even hitting 17-3, successfully nailing West Virginia over TCU and LA-Monroe over Troy against the majority. That was good enough to take the week by six points:
Meanwhile in the overall standings, birdjam is back on top by just a deuce over Anaconda, rockhopper moves up to 9th place, and plenty are still in contention. Among your prestigious writing staff, Joel is in 13th, Incipient is 23rd, and from the back in 61st place is yours truly. Give me time.
Tonight it's all the glory of a big Saturday packed into Thursday: three games on the slate, including Oregon/Stanford and Oklahoma/Baylor. Here's how our community is feeling this week:
- 86% take Baylor at home over Oklahoma in a sentence you never thought you'd read a few years ago. Having seen their wrath firsthand we're even more confident in Oregon: 94.1% like the Ducks on the road at Stanford.
- In SEC action on Saturday Texas A&M (over Miss State), Florida (over Vanderbilt), and Missouri (at Kentucky) are all batting 1.000. One person is taking Arkansas at Ole Miss.
- 74.5% like Auburn to beat our Vols at high noon, which, as we've said all year, is why they'd call it an upset. 88.2% take Alabama over LSU.
- It's a week full of big games, but everyone's playing the favorites heavy so far: Auburn is the least confident pick of the week.
