Beat the Blogger Match-Ups: Dec. 8-9

It’s the quiet before the storm. No college football games yet and the NCAA basketball season is in the cupcake portion of the schedule, along with fewer games as the student-athletes take their exams.

Last week: For the first time that I can remember, the Blogger beat everyone else, with 9 of the 10 games correct. So for one week, I’m pulling rank. However, I expect to have many more winners this week and going forward.

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 Basketball (Saturday)
Illinois at Gonzaga (Gon)
Wisconsin at Marquette (Wis)

NBA (Saturday)
NY Knicks at Chicago (NYK)

NFL (Sunday)

Tie-Breaker
Who throws for more yards, Detroit’s Mathew Stafford or Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers? (Rodgers)
