    For those of you who didn't play in the past or don't remember, this is a confidence pick'em.

    10 games of interest per week.

    You pick winner of each game, assigning 1 for least confident to 10 for most confident for each of your predictions (each number used once).

    You earn the points assigned to each correct pick.

    Whomever gets the most points gets rep (or Likes now, I guess) from everyone who submitted an entry. Plus bragging rights, which is a hell of a lot more important.

    Tiebreaker will be closest prediction of how many points CU scores that week.

    As usual, I tried to pick 10 games that were televised and look competitive (or where there's real potential for an upset).

    You gotta assign points to each prediction. Right now you can win a tie of zero points if CU scores 61 points (that's the way I read "CU total points").

    stoopid computer saved before I was done. I read the points as combined but changed to just CU points.

    You need to edit in how many points you think the Buffs will score Thursday night.

    P.S. disluke button for not picking our game. I'll assume you didn't pick it because it doesn't look competitive!

    I don't think I ever include the CU game in this. People will be watching that game and in Chat anyway.

    Besides, if one of you picked against the Buffs I'd rather not have to see it and hate you. :facepalm:

    4 Fri, Sep 4, 8:15pm, ESPN: Washington at Boise State
    8 Sat, Sep 5, 10:00am, ESPN: #21 Stanford at Northwestern
    2 Sat, Sep 5, 1:00pm, ABC: BYU at Nebraska
    9 Sat, Sep 5, 1:30pm, CBS: Louisville vs #6 Auburn (neutral in Atlanta)
    7 Sat, Sep 5, 1:30pm, FOX: Virginia at #13 UCLA
    3 Sat, Sep 5, 5:00pm, ESPN: #15 Arizona State vs Texas A&M ("neutral" in Houston)
    5 Sat, Sep 5, 5:30pm, NBC: Texas at #11 Notre Dame
    6 Sat, Sep 5, 6:00pm, ABC: #6 Wisconsin vs #3 Alabama (neutral in Arlington)
    10 Mon, Sep 7, 6:00pm, ESPN: #1 Ohio State at Virginia Tech

    A couple caveats: I never pick Nebraska and I'm a CU fan from Wisconsin. So while I think Wisconsin will lose, well it would be like picking against the Buffs.

    PS great job Nik picking games for a first week. Usually a week where it is really hard to find games where some thought has to be put in.

    Far be it from me to point out that there is NO rep anymore.

    Carry on with your little game.
