Week 10 Recap

There was another big week for us in the pick em, as we picked 35 games, involving all the ranked plus non-ranked power 5 teams. More points are available with the more games, so you can see a larger difference in how the results turn out. However, the 4 of us that picked last week stayed relatively close in games picked correctly and points awarded. First, a look at how the past 2 weeks have gone and a look at the overall standings.

There was only a 4-game difference between the top and the bottom, as we continue to pick around .500 overall, no matter how many games are picked. The top 2 have picked only one game different, and Ryan's once insurmountable lead has dwindled down to just over 100 points. As for the Big 12, all 5 teams finally played on the same weekend.

Baylor's shenanigans in Manhattan, KS cost us all, and it cost me the chance at going 5 for 5 in the conference games. Also picking last week were the readers in the contest for Big 12 and ranked team games. The results for the top 5 are as follows....
