Pick ‘Em Week 1

Posted by cuorange on September 3, 2009

The picks for week 1 of the CUOrange Pick ‘Em Contest are in and the choices are below.

Here’s the contestants: CUOrange, Texas D, B.Rink from the ACC Blog Ontheb-rink, A. Eargle and the mammoth computer AccuScore.

Here’s how it works: We’ll choose 8-10 games a week and make picks against the spread through the Bowl season. Best record against the spread wins. It’s man against man and man against computer as we see how we compare against AccuScore. Winner earns one year free subscription to CUOrange.
