It was a really good week for Pigskin Pickers as 33 of the 50 who sent in entry ballots registered 10 wins or more — the season’s best effort by far.

The ironic thing is there was only one picker who missed more than five games. Normally, that number is a bit higher.

The two games that threw most pickers off were the LSU/Florida and Michigan/Michigan State contests. Seven of you picked the Tigers to upset the Gators in “The Swamp,” while only one picker — Truman Stockdale — picked the Spartans over the Wolverines.

The most common record was again 10-3 with 17 of you hitting that mark. There were 12 who finished 11-2, and no perfect entries were turned in.

That leaves only 12-1, and there were four who registered that record. Those who missed just one game were Jerry Burcham, Greg Tucker, Roger Burns and Stockdale. Due to the four-way deadlock, the tiebreaker game was used. That game was Corinth’s 57-13 win over Tishomingo County, so the closest to 70 points was named the winner.

This week that honor goes to Burcham, who predicted there would be 63 points scored between the Warriors and Braves.

This week’s games are listed on page 12 inside the ads. Be sure and fill your ballots out and either bring them by the office on South Harper or mail them in. All that information is on the entry form.

As always, we say thank you for playing Pigskin Picks and being loyal readers of the Daily Corinthian sports pages.
