2021-22 TideFans Football Bowl Games Pick'em

This is the 3rd week of Bowl Games

ENTER Bowl Games - Week 3

DEADLINE: TODAY (FRIDAY), 12/31 @ 230pm CT

Here are some rules - These are a bit changed from the regular season rules, so please read!


HOW TO ENTER:
  • You must be logged in to enter.
  • 2021-22 TideFans Football Bowl Games Pick'em (there will also be a direct link to the Bowl Games Pickem pool in the PICKEM dropdown on the menu bar)
  • You will need to Click on the red "JOIN POOL" button on the top right side bar
  • Pick all of your picks and the two tiebreakers.
  • For tiebreakers, enter the # of YARDS for each one (the tiebreakers are across ALL bowl games for that week, not just SEC games).
  • You can change your Picks at any point up until each week's deadline at which point the week's picks will be locked and you can't make any new picks or change any picks.
  • "MANAGE YOUR PICKS" prior to the deadline by clicking the red "MANAGE YOUR PICKS" button on the top right sidebar.
RULES
  • You must be logged in to enter.
  • There is no cost to enter.
  • ALL picks must be entered before the deadline
  • There are at least 10 picks each week. Some weeks we may have more but never less (unless there are not enough games with odds available)
  • There are 2 tiebreakers each week. One is the Most passing yards in a bowl game for that week and the other is the Most rushing yards in a bowl game for the week. ENTER THE # OF YARDS!
  • Each game is worth 1 point if you win the pick (you are picking against the spread)
  • If a game is not played due to COVID-19 or weather or for any other reason that week, then that game will be considered a 0-0 tie with no winners - even if it is made up at a later date.
  • Remember: Picks are against the spread. Picking against the spread example:
    • Kudzu University is playing Weedkiller College
    • Kudzu U. has -4.5 (minus 4.5) beside it meaning Kudzu U. is predicted to win by at least 4.5 points.
    • Thus, if you picked Kudzu, they must win the game by at least 5 points before you earn the win point.
    • Even if Weedkiller loses but does so by less than 5, you don't get the win point.
    • A game with a positive spread (i.e. 4.5) means that team is predicted to LOSE by 4.5.
  • Canceled games will be scored as a tie.
  • Ties for any final end of season prizes will be broken based on lowest cumulative weekly rankings (i.e. if there were 4 weeks and one of the tied leaders finished #1,#1,#3,#5 the cumulative would be 10 and the other finished #2,#2,#2,#2, the second tied leader would win with a cumulative total of 8)
PRIZES:
  • BamaNation will provide at least 3 prizes throughout the bowl season. Players must have entered the Pick'em that week in order to be eligible to win!
  • BamaNation will also do a random drawing at the end of the bowl season for another prize. Each player will get 1 entry per week. So if a player plays all 10 weeks, s/he has 10 entries into the random year-ender prize regardless of how s/he performed.
  • All random prizes are given at the discretion of BamaNation, whose judgement is final.
  • In the event that a tie cannot be broken as defined above, prizes will be split by the winners.
  • In the event that any rule needs clarifying, BamaNation will provide the clarification and his judgement is final. Any needed corrections will supersede previously posted results.
  • There is no cost to enter. You just have to login.
Good luck everyone - Week 3 of this 2021-22 Bowl Games Pick'em season is up NOW so go and join. RTR!

Sorry - just posted. Thought I had already made it available earlier this week :( and then I was traveling later in the week.

DEADLINE for these final 8 games is TODAY 12/31 @ 230p CT. We won't do the early games. No "top winner" prize for this Week 3 slate since it's pretty rushed but will award a random prize selected from all entrants for Week 3.

Will post Week 1& 2 Bowl Game results shortly.

I'm working on prizes from regular season and weeks 1&2 of bowl games. Should be ready to announce by Monday.

Thanks for being patient!
