Rock Chalk Pick’em Week 3: Oklahoma only Big 12 team predicted to lose

New, 4 comments

Even through two weeks of College Football chaos, our pickers are doing fairly well.  Can these matchups of heavyweights be enough to knock them down a peg?

Michigan State v Notre Dame

Last week was pretty good for our pickers in general, especially the new guy who tied for high score of the week. With only one picker below 70% on the season, it’s safe to say that we are generally doing pretty good here at RCT collectively.

A note about last week’s games: I gave everyone credit for picking Oklahoma State, due to the “unusual” circumstances surrounding the end of the game. Since everyone picked them, it doesn’t change the relative positions.

We had a few pickers go out on a limb this week with a pick that no one else would make. I took Appalachian State, jakebogen95 took Auburn (the only one taking the favorite in that matchup), and Winmore actually took both Missouri and Mississippi.

So without further ado, on to the picks:
