Ian looked pretty stupid last week when he was the only one to pick against Michigan. But he got the last laugh this week with his Minnesota pick. Maybe now the rest of the beat will ditch its hometown bias.
Stephanie was bummed that she ruined her perfect record on best bets, but winning the week made her feel a little better. Now she’s in the lead for best bets and overall record.
Gabe and Matt had solid weeks, each finishing one game above .500. But Matt feels pretty dumb about picking Michigan as his best bet. (He is from Minnesota, after all.)
For a celebrity, Stanford had an average week, tying Ian with a 7-10 record. Most impressive, Stanford was the only one to pick Oregon, which beat Arizona State by 14. Well done.
