    Big 12 knockout challenge! WEEK 1

    Edit: Nearly 40 entries, so I'm closing the doors on any more people joining.

    I started this a few weeks back on a different forum, but would like to get one running here at CF. 1st 30 posters(or so) to enter(including myself) get in. I'll limit it to around 30 so i don't have a ton of work to do with 100 picks to go through.

    Rules are simple.
    1. Each week you pick "A Big 12" team you think will win. You may only pick a team once during the competition. Example: you can only pick Oklahoma once this season.
    2. You MAY NOT pick against a Big 12 team in consecutive weeks...meaning you just can't follow KU's schedule and pick their opponents each week.
    3. You may pick a Big 12 team against a non conference opponent.
    4. As long as you submit a weekly pick in the weekly thread and that team wins, you move on! No one will advance if they miss a week. Too much navigating the schedule for others to let that happen.

    I'll create a new thread every Monday with a spreadsheet chronicling all the picks of people moving forward, and letting people know who they can't pick against that week. Picks need to be in before 11am on Saturday. There's no deadline for Thursday night games though.

    In the event that we have some people survive through to the conference championship game, then I'll create some prop bets for the championship game to sort it all out. If that doesn't yield a winner then the person who picked the most road wins is the champ.

    This weeks games!

    The schedule
    Nebraska at Kansas State
    Oklahoma State at Louisiana-Lafayette
    Baylor vs Texas Tech (Cotton Bowl in Dallas)
    Arkansas vs Texas A&M (Cowboys Stadium in Arlington)
    Utah at Iowa State
    Colorado at Missouri

    Should be pretty clear cut, but if you have any questions post em or PM me. If mods could consider pinning future weeks to the top, it might be a good thing(?)
