2014 ATQ Jersey Contest: Week 1

This year's edition of the ATQ Jersey Contest is here! Make sure to join the pool and make your picks each week for a chance to win an Oregon jersey.

With the college football season (finally) arriving, it's time to announce the eighth annual ATQ Jersey Contest. Each week, I will select a group of games and you will pick the winner against the spread.  At the end of the season, the user with the highest cumulative total will receive an Oregon Ducks jersey of their choosing.  Previous winners include: ducklady77777(2013), hamiltop2009 (2012), Bakkala (2011), PhantomF4 (2010 - after a tiebreaker), axemen23 (2009), buffduck (2008) and jteubs (2007 - after a tiebreaker).

This year, the pool will be hosted on Yahoo -- you will need to register with the site and join the ATQ pool (group id is 8344, password is GoDucks). Please name your entry so that includes your SBN login.

This year, we will be picking against the spread for most games featuring a Pac-12 team (games that happen before Friday each week are excluded). Picks are due five minutes prior to kickoff for each game.  It is important to note that there are no default picks -- you will need to log in each week and make picks in order to receive a score for that week.  I will post the games and a reminder in a post on ATQ each Monday.

All participants are subject to the official rules which can be found here: 2014 ATQ Jersey Contest Rules

Here are this week's games (without the spread -- check the yahoo site for the official spread, which looks to be locked on Thursday):

  • Colorado State at Colorado (Friday)
  • UNLV at Arizona (Friday)
  • South Dakota at Oregon
  • UCLA at Virginia
  • California at Northwestern
  • Portland State at Oregon State
  • UC Davis at Stanford

Good luck this year!
