RBR 2017 College Football Bowl Game Pick ‘Em

This year, Yahoo has decided to not have its annual Bowl Pick ‘Em. ESPN has reached its max number of groups, so we cannot create our own. Thus, we’re going outside the box and using a pool creation site for the game.

Rules

The pick ‘em is very simple: The game is free to play. You pick all 40 bowl games, against the spread, with confidence ratings for each. At the end of the 40 games, the person with the most points will win something from the Gump Box at or near $50 in value (We spend an appalling amount on you; you’re the gumpy baby chicks we’ve taken under our crimson wings.) I’ve not decided on the prize yet, but it will be Alabama Crimson Tide-themed and officially licensed. Trust me, you’ll like it. Everyone likes surprises. Hell, the winner of our spot prize for diagramming a sentence got a 2011 BCS Championship knife! The Gump Box shall provide.

Editors and writers are free to enter and compete.

The deadline for all picks is the first bowl game of the pool, December 16th at 1:00 pm EST — that's when ALL games lock. The point spreads are locked as of today: The line will not move. So, if someone gets hurt, flunks out, etc. we’re all just SOL.

In the event of ties per game, the tiebreaker criteria are:

  • Win/Loss % of the Players
  • Winning Team Score
  • Losing Team Score
  • Combined Teams Score
  • Winning Team in Tiebreaker Game
