All this during a week which included several “pick em” contests with a few that turned into true blue shockers.
The two obvious “shocker” games were Corinth’s huge comeback win over Pontotoc and Auburn’s upset of then top-ranked Georgia. Two more contests that tripped many of us up were Miami/Notre Dame and Kentucky/Vanderbilt.
There were no perfect entries and for a while it seemed 11-2 would be good enough to at least cause a tie for the top spot. Finally, one entrant came through at 12-1.
Congratulations to Kaye Robertson of Corinth for her 12-win entry. She claims this week’s $25 prize.
There were nine entries who recorded 11 wins while 13 went 10-3. Not bad picking considering the lineup of games.
This will be the final week of Pigskin Picks for the season and you can find the games on page 12 as usual. We hope to see your entry ballot fully filled out and in our office by close of business this Friday. Who knows, maybe you will be the last to join the list of 2017 weekly winners. Thank you for participating and being loyal readers of the Daily Corinthian sports pages.
