CUSA Mega Pick’Em Results: Week 1

Let’s recap week 1 of the CUSA Pick’Em game!

Week one of the brand new gtpdd CUSA Pick’Em has come and gone! And although the games weren’t quite as hard to pick this week as they should be in the future, no one got them all right! We did have 5 players who guessed 13 of the 14 games correctly, but no one had the right combination of USA over USM, CLT over Duke, Mississippi State over Tech, and UTSA over Illinois to score full points.

Overview

Week 1 saw 74 players put in a total of 1,012 picks, of which 786 were correct. Players collectively earned 310 points on their LOCK OF THE WEEK picks, while 3 players lost 15 points total on incorrect bets. Let’s dive in!

That’s right! After one week, we’ve got a five-way tie for first place. Tenacious Dog was one of 16 people to pick Tech over Mississippi State, but alas, our collective heartbreak at the 20 point blown lead must hurt a little more for him. Meanwhile, fellow Tech fans Jib Buttkiss and Guillot are angry at USM for losing and Charlotte for winning, respectively. Our UTSA fan friend Peter C is likewise angry at USM, and Nicholas Galindo at Charlotte!

The top five results that players bet points on were:

  • Florida beating FAU (77 points)
  • UAB beating Jacksonville State (42 points)
  • North Texas beating Northwestern State (36 points)
  • Mississippi State beating Tech (35 points)
  • Wake Forest beating ODU (35 points)

Only three players were wrong about their bets this week, and a total of 15 points were lost.

Surprisingly, The largest blowout of the weekend was one of only two games players didn’t want to touch: Marshall vs. Navy (final score: 49-7 Marshall). Unsurprisingly, players also didn’t bet on Charlotte or Duke to win in what ended up being a crazy finish!
