Sorry it's coming out so late, but here we go!  First a reminder of the rules:

Obviously you can only pick the underdog; I use Rivals.com for my spread. An underdog by 3 1/2 points or less is worth 1 point if they win, 4-8 points is worth 2, and 8 1/2 or more is worth 3. 

 

For those interested, here are the past winners:

2011: TCU Opster
2012: HokiesCavs
2013: Spiffy
2014: Dasyboja 
2015: CornHuskers

2016: Spiffy

 

That's right, I'm the returning champ.  Think you can knock me off the top this year?  Let's go!

Gimme Florida at home over Michigan for two points (spread is +5).

I just realized that's postponed. When is it supposed to be played? If it plays this week, I'll stick to it. If not, can I take Florida State over 'Bama for 2?

Probably missed it either way. I saw that UNLV spread and thought it would be so funny (but impossible) if UNLV lost, and of course they did. That was quite the upset.

I'm sorry CornHuskers, I didn't notice this when you made the pick, but Kentucky was actually the favorite in that game based on everything I'm seeing.

I used vegasinsider and they had Southern Miss favored by 10 I think it was.

Everything I saw had Kentucky -10, which would make them the favorite.
