    In celebration of our first season in the Pac-12 TheJunta would like to announce our first "Pick the Score" contest for all of CU's Pac-12 games as well as the Cal OOC game. The rules are pretty simple each member can enter once per week and everyone who posts is eligible to win every week (including past winners). The first person to post the exact score of the game that week will be deemed the winner. In the event that no-one predicts the exact score the person who is closest without out exceeding the point total for the game will win. First person to post the winning score will own the tie-breaker.

    The prize for each of these games will be a $30 Amazon gift card to the winner. We will be opening this up to the opposing teams fans as well as part of our outreach to our new conference mates.

    Good luck to everyone and my first guess is:

    CU - 28
    Cal - 24

    Bah... I hate these because I always pick with my heart and not my brain... I'd rather pick a CU win and Lost The Game rather than pick against my beloved Buffs:

    31 - 28 Mighty Buffaloes.

    I just don't see the Buffs being in a position to pull this one out. The talent disparity is too wide, I'm afraid. Hope I'm wrong.

    I don't have a ton of hope we'll pull this out, but it won't stop me from picking CU in a close one.

    CU 24
    Cal 20

    You could say the same thing about OU in '07, NU in '01, etc. Fact is, Cal has a brand new QB who will be making his FIRST start on the road against a BCS team and Cal has a LOT of questions floating around the offense and Tedford.

    Oh and Cal has one of the worst road/home splits in the NCAA.

    CU - 38
    Cal - 14

    If this happens I hope the Junta will give you a $60 gift card.

    Cal will also being playing home games at ATT and Candlestick. That can't help, especially if Giants make the postseason.

    For my score.

    I'm sure the talent disparity is too wide between Cal and Nevada as well. Cal went 5-7 last year and 1-4 on the road. I'm tired of people thinking Cal is some great team because they stomped a poorly coached CU team last year.

    My score is

    Buffs 31
    Cal 27

    I wouldn't be surprised if the buffs won in a blowout as well
