    College Football Contest

    This is an introduction to a new contest this year for anyone on CF. The concept of the game is to pick an underdog that you think will win the game. If your dog wins that week you receive the number of points that the opposing team was favored by.

    Example: Iowa @ ISU(14) Iowa is favored by 14. If you pick ISU and when ISU wins you receive 14 points for that week. No points are given for just covering.

    Only one pick per week of the teams that are listed each week. Remember that everytime you edit your post it time stamps it.

    Point totals and a new list will be posted at the start of each week.

    This contest will run through Iowa State's regular season. The last week a tiebreaker question will also be asked.

    At the end of the contest, the top three point totals will receive an award to be posted below their username until the next contest. This is for bragging rights on the board.

    Ask any questions in this thread. The first week will start tomorrow.

    Any suggestions to a name for this contest?


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Is there any site where we can easily find the lines for the games?

    I will post the spreads. Right now I am planning on going with Big 12 teams and the states that surround the state of Iowa. Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinios. Once we get into the Big 12 schedule I will add some more to keep it around 15 teams to choose from.
