Happy Holidays everyone. I hope you all had a good Christmas and have been able to spend some time off with family and friends.
Last week: Before the Christmas holiday, there were some tough games to try and predict. Many of the contestants had five or less of the games correct. When all was said and done, Durward came out on top, with eight of the 10 games correct.
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:
NCAA Football (Saturday)
West Virginia vs. Syracuse (W. Va.)
Texas vs. Oregon St. (Ore St.)
