    2018-19 College Football Bowl Pick'Em Contest

    All the bowl games have been set, now that the regular season and conference championships are in the history books. I've reckon that I want to do a college football bowl pick'em for another season. I want to do something different for this season, to make things interesting. Here's my take: Every non-New Year's Six Bowl you get correct, is one point. The four New Year's Six Bowl games, not counting seminfinals, is two points. The semifinals is three points, and the national champ is four points. And maybe a bonus question for extra points for guessing the national champion of the 2018 season. What do you guys think? I'll post the bowl games tomorrow. The first bowl game start December 15 so I will try to post the bowl games sooner.

    I'll give this one a go as well. It'll give me a reason to watch the Beef O'Brady's Bowl.

    I'm gonna bump this thread to everyone that tomorrow at 11:00 AM CT is the deadline to make your picks, if anyone's interested in doing this contest. I've changed it from 7 to 11 to give people a little more time before the bowl games start around 11.

    Sorry that it's been late to post this, but here it goes.

    After 39 of 40 bowl games, which the Boston College vs. Boise State game was cancelled due to lightning, which I think it's a big mistake to call the game all together. But anyways, a winner has been decided. The winner of the College Football Bowl Pick'em for 2018-19 bowl season, is Vayne!

    Vayne has accumulated 35 points total, while me (Doom), has only accumulated 26 points, got the bonus question wrong for picking my home state Alabama team, finishing second in the contest. TCON finishes third in a close battle for runner-up, while HoHo finishes last with 18 points.

    Here are the final standings:

    STANDINGS
    1st Vayne -35 pts
    2nd Doom - 26 pts
    3rd TCON - 25 pts
    4th HoHo - 18 pts


    Next time, I'm thinking about doing the Capital One Bowl Mania pick'em instead of doing it manually on here. That's why this contest didn't go as I've hope. But it's worth a try. Congrats to Vayne on winning the Bowl Pick'em Contest~!

    Thanks man!

    I thought it was fun.

    And I agree, it was dumb they straight out cancelled the other bowl game. Why not just reschedule?
    Everything will surely be alright.
