Welcome to Jammer's 2018 College Bowl Contest.

An invitation-only contest with a purse of $1,000.

The format combines a pointspread contest with confidence points.

Select only 20 of the available 39 bowl games.

Submit 14 bowl game selections of your choice PLUS six mandatory selections involving the New Year's Six games (Peach, Fiesta, Rose, Sugar, Orange and Cotton).

Assign your best bet a confidence rating of 20 points, your second-best bet a confidence rating of 19 points, and so on.

Pointspread pushes will earn half the assigned confidence points.

The contestant with the most points will win $600, compliments of Jammer and BetDSI.

Second place is worth $300 and third place will earn $100.

A tiebreaker will be established in the National Championship Game, if necessary.

Post your selections in this thread.

Entry deadline is Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. PT.

I think it was circled earlier because of WR Harmon's status, maybe DSI had it off line when he grabbed the lines. Noticed when I was putting rotation #'s in for the other "side", decided not to include it to keep both sides consistent.

Harmon being out has been known for a while, I think it was just an oversight on John's part

Several of your spreads are off. At first glance EMU, TCU, and Missouri.

We’re using JK’s published spreads in post #1 of this thread, not current numbers.

Thanks for covering for me, Goon.

Oversight on my part, as Kane suggested.
