Welcome to the 15th(!) year of our weekly CFB Pick’em game, hosted once again at We do straight up, single value pick’em against the spread here, none of your fancy weighted selection nonsense. An exact score prediction for the LSU game (or a substitute when there’s a bye) will serve as the tie breaker, with further tie breakers determined in this order:

Picks will generally be available every Monday, but the lineup of games is subject to change until I make the weekly notice about it here on ATVS, so don’t make your picks until you see this post. (Also, Week 1 extends through Labor Day, so expect Week 2 to be available that Tuesday). While the spreads are set on Mondays, the deadline for picks is the kickoff time for each individual game, so if some quarterback breaks a leg in practice during the week be sure to come back and update your pick.

If you participated in our pick’em game in previous years, you may have already received an invite (or multiple, sorry) to join this year’s game. if not, it’s simple to join us, first go to Fun Office and setup an account if you don’t already have one, then come back here and click on this LINK. The password to join the pool is “geauxtigers”.

Each weekly winner will receive the highest honor this blog can bestow: THE ATVS KOOZIE OF POWER!
