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.

Here is a listing of all the bowl games, opponents, dates, times and locations!

The Challenge begins its final push

As the year begins anew, the WEPM Bowl Challenge begins its final push as the BCS gets underway with the granddaddy of them all, the Rose Bowl. It’s still anybodies game as the standings remain close going into the new year. Remember, points double for all BCS games.

George, Pete and myself sat down and talked and gave out thoughts on some of the games leading up to the National Championship.
