Welcome to the 19th Annual College Football Bowl
Rules for the College Bowl Challenge:
- Pick a winner for each of the 39(!) (plus the Championship game) 2017/2018 college football bowl games
- Rank each game from 1-39, assigning a number once and only
once. Give 39 points to the winner you feel most confident in, and 1
point to your least favorite pick.
- Get your ballot and the $5 entry fee to me before the
first game is played on Dec. 17th. Any mailed
entries must be postmarked on or before
Dec. 17th. You can enter as often as you wish, as
long as each entry into the pool includes its own $5 fee.
- If the team you pick is the winner of the game, you get the
number of points you assigned the game. In ties, both teams
count as "winners".
- After all bowl games have been played, points will be
totaled and players ranked in decreasing point order. The
player with the greatest number of points is the winner. The
tiebreaker in all cases will be the player who comes closest to
guessing the total number of points scored in the CFP Championship game.
Any further ties will then just split the winnings (ie., a
2 way tie for first will split 75% of the pool).
- Pool will be split as follow:
- 1st place: 50%
- 2nd place: 25%
- 3rd place: 15%
- 4th place: 10%
- The 2017 Roger Goodell Award goes to the player with
the fewest points. This player will get
their $5 back. (Only if there are
enough players in the pool.)
How do you want to play today?
You can enter one of two ways. You can either fill out a form
on the web or print out an HTML page and mail it in.
