Pigskin Pickers had what I like to refer to as a ‘hardluck week’ as only six of the 49 total entries registered 10 wins or more. Compare that to last week when over half of you that turned in ballots were 10-3 or better.

But it’s typical of this time of year as the game’s get harder to pick on a weekly basis due to the nature of the beast. But three games in particular seemed to be the hardest.

Walnut’s loss at Fayette Academy was the shocker as the Wildcats lost their first game of the season 35-21 as a comfortable favorite. Sharon Green of Corinth was the only picker to choose Fayette to win the contest. The other two tilts that threw most of you off- myself included- were the Oklahoma State/TCU and Corinth/Kossuth games. Only seven of you chose the Horned Frogs to beat the favored Cowboys on the road while an even 10 picked Corinth to best Kossuth.

There were no perfect entries this week—not even a 12-1 mark. Dale Peters of Corinth went 11-2 and is this week’s Pigskin Picks winner. Six others came close with 10 wins including Jimmy Flake of Walnut, along with Blake Robertson, Mickey Singleton, Jayson Johnston, Ricky Johnston and Jerry Burcham all of Corinth.

We thank you for playing Pigskin Picks each week and being loyal readers of the Daily Corinthian sports pages. Maybe you’ll be our next winner. This week’s games can be found in the ads on page 12. Just flip the page and pick away.
