    When was the last (or even first) time this competition has extended the entire season?

    It's a 14 week season, and usually this contest is over by week 8. So you usually don't have to pick every team once. It gets more complicated come league play to not duplicate picking them a loser picks.

    Never happened. You can technically only survive for 12 picks, and that is assuming that you haven't run out of loser picks.

    That's why this competition is called the "contest of whits." ( Get it? Whit-tingham?)

    I have to get Oregon State out of the way, because when can I pick them (also said earlier, but reinforcing).

    Oregon State.

    The two-time champion* picks UCLA

    Ucla - I hate picking against most of our former MWC mates. I enjoyed watching Wyoming beat Missouri and CSU did some nice things in the first half against CU.

    If Oregon State loses (haha, of course they will), very few people will be left in the contest. Next week could be the championship!

    Just as I suspected. This game is rigged.

    Rigged for smart guys! I can't understand why anyone would pick OSU. But the amount of people choosing UCLA last week is astounding. Chip Kelly is 0-5 against non-conference opponents while at UCLA, soon to be 0-6. I think the verdict is in on his coaching ability.
