Standings

Joe S: 73
Fans: 73
Eric: 70
Joe B: 67
Mike: 55

Lock (1 point): You pick anyone you want (within the AAC games). Even if it’s a non-conference game, you can pick the opposing team. This is a pick you’re extremely confident in, and likely won’t lose.

Blowout (2 points): This is just AAC teams. You will pick which AAC team will win by the most points. It’ll most likely be a blowout, but even if that team only wins by 10, it counts in this category.

Upset (3 points): We’re counting this as any team that’s not favored. It could be their +1 or +35, doesn’t matter. You’re picking a team that’s not the favorite to win that particular game, not cover the spread.

Use ‘Em and Lose ‘Em (4 points): There are 12 teams in the AAC. You get to pick one team per week, and then you cannot pick them again. So, if you pick UCF, you lose them. Your list of teams to pick from will obviously decrease as the season progresses.

**NOTE: ALL GAMES PICKED ARE AAC GAMES ONLY

FOR OUR FANS/READERS: All of your picks are decided by a vote. The option in each category with the most votes will be your selection each week.

**Any picks left unanswered will result in forefeits


Lock

Mike: Charlie Strong’s future hangs in the balance and I don’t think this game will help his case any. Give me Cincinnati.

Joe B: No way Cincinnati loses this weekend to USF. If they do, the AAC East gets a little more interesting.

Joe S: USF is a bad football team. The Bearcats are the top-ranked P6 team looking to cement their spot in the New Year’s Six. Cincinnati wins decisively.

Eric: I don’t think Charlie Strong has a miracle left in him, so let’s roll with Cincinnati.

Blowout

Mike: Again it’s hard not to take the Bearcats here. Give me Cincinnati.

Joe B: Cincinnati should dominate against USF, so give me the Bearcats.

Joe S: Cincinnati will not only win, but go well over the 14-point spread.

Eric: Cincinnati will produce the biggest blowout over the Bulls.

Upset

Mike: I really like Navy in this spot. Will depend on how their defense plays but give me the Midshipmen.

Joe B: Well, I need to pick up some points here, so let’s go with Navy to upset Notre Dame.

Joe S: Temple already has two wins as a home underdog this season, and those came against ranked opponents. They do it again this week.

Eric: We’re pretty much at the point where I have to pick against Joe S. As a result, Go Navy.

Use ‘Em and Lose ‘Em

Mike: I’m one of the few with a pick here so maybe I can make up a little ground. Probably not because I can’t see Tulane beating Temple but I’m going to ride with it.

Joe B: Well, Tulsa’s my only team left and they’re not playing.....oh well.

Joe S: We have reached the point where I only have one team left, and it is Tulane against my alma mater, Temple. It is not going to happen, though, as I picked the Owls as my upset pick above and in this week’s Underdogs Against the Spread.

Eric: Why does Tulsa have to be on a bye this week?

Fans: Last team for you guys, so you’re stuck with Tulsa....who’s on a bye. Stay tuned to the final two weeks to see what this category has to offer.
