Beat the Blogger Match-Ups – Aug. 25-26

This is the last weekend of preseason football, with next week’s games held during the week to give the teams extra time to prepare for Week 1 of the regular season. So we’ll split them up this week: five football and five baseball games. Good luck.

Last week’s winner: Barbie outdid everyone in guessing 9 of the 10 match-ups correctly.

As a reminder, contestants please post your e-mail address with your picks to be able to get addresses when you win. For those unfamiliar with the Beat the Blogger contest, the idea is simple. The Blogger posts 10 match-ups each week and then selects his choices for the winners of those match-ups. Contestants enter the Beat the Blogger contest by clicking on the “Comment” section below the post with the match-ups and then select their own winners. Please fill out the tie-breaker question at the end.

If you Beat The Blogger’s total and post the high score for the week, you win. The regular weekly prize is a signed 8-by-10 photo of a professional athlete. Now to this week’s match-ups.
