Genghis Khan succeeded in conquering foreign peoples, and he performed similarly well with his picks this week. The spokesman for therealretro.com T-shirt company helped the celebrities’ cause with a winning record, moving his group of well-known peers closer to the pack of football writers. Unfortunately, Genghis’s best bet, West Virginia, didn’t play because of Hurricane Wilma.
Gabe had the best week overall, with an 11-6-1 mark. His Northwestern and Washington State picks went against the grain and helped him leapfrog Ian into third place.
Matt and Stephanie both remained in the top two spots with winning weeks, but Ian’s 5-12-1 meltdown left him trailing among the writers.
