This entire season we've had a contest amongst our members of Panel of Pokes. We picked the winner of every Mountain West game for 14 weeks plus the bowl games. After those 14 weeks the battle for the top spot still came down to just one seperating our leaders heading into this final round.
Here were the final standings heading into the bowl games.
|Matt Blaylock - PokePride||76|
|Matt Hargleroad - C.A.||75|
|Skyler Corcoran - C.A.||71|
|Brad Reed - WyoNation||68|
|Ian McMackin - GoWyoGo||67|
|Chad Smith - 7220 Report||67|
Took a look after the jump to see who claimed victory.
Here is the link for our bowl picks if you want to check them out.
After everything was tallied up here are the final standings:
|Last Week||Bowl Points||Total|
So there you have it. Some how I pulled out a come from behind victory in the final week. Unfortunately that also required the Mountain West losing two more bowl games. I was the only one who predicted a loss for San Diego State or Air Force and both of those were very close games. None of us predicted a Temple victory in the New Mexico Bowl.
After 15 total weeks the margin for the entire group was still just 11 points.
I'll do my victory speech in the form of a video.
