At TOC we like to do Pick 'Em contests for bowl season, and Michigan State making the Rose Bowl hasn't changed that one bit. In fact, this may be the biggest contest we've run yet. So here's how the contest will work:
- We're running a confidence Pick 'Em, meaning you'll pick the winners of all 35 bowl games, then sort them in order based on how confident you are in the pick. For example, if you think there's no way Florida State is losing to Auburn, that would be 35 points. If you think Michigan State might win the Rose Bowl but are deathly afraid of that pick negatively impacting you in the contest (like myself), you'd give the Rose Bowl at one point.
- The person with the most points at the end of the BCS National Championship game wins the contest. Don't worry, we'll have prizes for the top three scores, so make sure you fill out the tiebreaker as well.
- We're running the contest through ESPN, so click here to go to the contest.
As for the prizes, we've once again teamed up with Underground Printing, who have some of the best, if not the best Spartans gear available. They've even made special shirts for the Rose Bowl, like this one:
