Bowl Game Challenge

The WEPM College Bowl Challenge

Here’s how it works, Pete, George, Joe, Efren and Greg will pick a winner of the 35 bowl game schedule.

 The scoring breaks down as such:                                                        

 5 points for each correct game winner

 1 bonus point for each exact final score
Example: WV-56 Syracuse 24, if I had those exact scores as the finals, that’s 2 pts on top of the 5 pts for having the correct winning team, a possible total of 7 pts.
For BCS games, the points double. 10pts for each correct game winner and 4 bonus pts for each exact score.
In the unlikely event of a tie, the tiebreaker will be who ever comes closest to the point total of the BCS Championship game without going over.
