Rock Chalk Pick'em: Texas Tech, East Carolina, BYU underdog winners

Our pickers are bunched up after week 1. Can anyone separate from the pack this week?

NCAA Football: Western Carolina at East Carolina James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports

The first week of college action had enough upsets to prevent anyone having a particularly good week. This week, we gain another contestant and look at a lackluster slate of games.

As a reminder, we will pick 15 games each week, including every Big 12 game. The rest will be filled out by interesting matchups, with a focus on close games and/or potential Big 12 expansion candidates (in that order).

Yes, dnoll5 forgot to pick the last game (Google Sheets is weird sometimes and may be to blame), but I'll fill it in once he gets back to me.

So who has the best set of picks? What pick here is absolutely insane? Make sure to let us know below.
