Who’s up for another season of the FBS Bowl Pool Game?

The deadline for the pick of EACH GAME is the start time of that game. You can pick ahead for as many games as you like, with the option to change your mind before the game starts. Since I can’t possibly follow and keep track of when each game actually kicks off, we will be going by the advertised start time. If they take a half hour to introduce players, and don’t kick off till later, too bad. I will be going by the advertised start time.

All games are worth 40 points each for a correct guess, with the exception of the following:

Rose Bowl: 50 points
Fiesta Bowl: 50 Points
Sugar Bowl: 50 Points
Orange Bowl: 50 Points
BCS Championship: 75 Points

There will also be 10 Bonus Point Questions, with the deadlines for each BQ coinciding with the Bowl Game they are attached to. Point Spread BQ’s are worth 15 points, minus the variance of your guess to the actual Point Spread. Final Total Points BQ’s are worth 25 points, minus the variance of your guess to the actual Final Total Points.

BQ1: What will be the Point Spread in the Rose Bowl?
BQ2: What will be the Final Total Points scored in the Rose Bowl?
BQ3: What will be the Point Spread in the Fiesta Bowl?
BQ4: What will be the Final Total Points in the Fiesta Bowl?
BQ5: What will be the Point Spread in the Sugar Bowl?
BQ6: What will be the Final Total Points in the Sugar Bowl?
BQ7: What will be the Point Spread in the Orange Bowl?
BQ8: What will be the Final Total Points in the Orange Bowl?
BQ9: What will be the Point Spread in the BCS Championship Game?
BQ:10 What will be the Final Total Points in the BCS Championship Game?

Scoring will be the same as in the NFL Pool. You will receive a score based on the percentage of points you received against the total possible points to earn.

Here’s the chart with the dates/times/etc. Please pick the winner of each game. And please keep them in the same numerical order as I’ve listed them. Since there are so many games, and I’m not as familiar with these teams as I am in the NFL, please don’t just list Wolves, Sooners, etc. I need a game number, and the way I’ve listed the team down on the chart. This will help me out immensely when I do my data entry.

Here are the results for the 2013-2014 FBS College Bowls Pool Game. Since the chart is too big to post here, I will just list the Rank/Score, and if you’d like to check out how I came to these scores, you can check out the recaps I posted on my personal web page.

RESULTS
1. 74.576 Marianne
2. 66.508 cavies79





I have the recaps for all three boards on one Excel Workbook. If you don’t have Excel on your computer, you can download an Excel reader here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=1CD6ACF9-CE06-4E1C-8DCF-F33F669DBC3A&displaylang=en

Each board is on a separate tab, and one tab has the results of the three boards combined so you can see how this board’s members fared against the other boards. I also have a tab showing everyone’s picks as I entered them. So if you think I got the results wrong, please double check that I entered your picks right, and please let me know so I can make the necessary corrections.

Check the recaps here: http://home.comcast.net/~fbpoolgame/2013-2014%20FBS%20Bowls%20Pool.xlsIf you get a username/password prompt, just click on “cancel,” and you should still be able to gain access to the workbook. If you have any problems accessing the workbook, please PM me with your e-mail address and I’ll just e-mail it to you direct.


Thanks for playing!!
