Sporting Life Arkansas Pick’em Challenge – College Football Week 1

 

College Football Week 1

The Sporting Life Arkansas Pick’em Challenge

We asked seven of the Sporting Life Arkansas regular contributors and the Sports Desk to give us their predictions on select games throughout the 2013 football season. We begin the first week of the college football season with five games to pick – Ragin Cajuns at Razorbacks; Golden Lions at Red Wolves; Virginia Tech versus Alabama; Ole Miss at Vanderbilt; and TCU versus LSU.

Our weekly contributors are Jim Harris (@jimharris360), J. Frank Parnell (he stays off the grid and Twitter); Jeff Reed (@asuJeffReed); Jay Bir (@theJayBir); Jessica Duff (@jduff84); Justin Acri (@justinacri7); Doc Harper (@doc_harper) and finally, the Sporting Life Arkansas Sports Desk (@sportinglifeark)

We will keep up with the records of each picker from week to week and ask you to play along with us. You see the games we’ve chosen for College Football Week 1. Please enter your winners and scores in the comments section below. Oh, and feel free to hassle us over our picks. That’s part of the fun, too. Right?

    Jeff you got a brass set to make that pick but it is entirely possible! ULL is no pansy.

  • stAte

    Are you all just trying to be nice?

  • Jeff Reed

    Just a pick. Either I gain a game on everyone or they go one up on me. But I do think ULL has a chance, a better chance than ULM had last year.

  • Jay Bir

    Ohhh my…I waffled on the ULL-UA game but I think the line play will be the difference.

    Lotta respect to UAPB’s offense here I considering ASU has the best front 7 in the Belt and thats no joke

    We need a few more per week to really make it interesting!!
