Buckeye Empire Pick ‘Em Editors Selections – Week 3

On September 11, 2012 by Buckeye Empire

 

 

 

Week 2 of The Empire’s Editor Pick ‘Em Challenge saw Grant Edgell extending his lead from one game to two over Dark Side Editor Ryan Lephart. Costly losses by key members of the Big Ten ended up proving just as costly to the editors, as all four picked Nebraska, Wisconsin, and Iowa to win and were rewarded with losses for their foolishness (but we all got to keep our jobs). Couple that with disappointments from Miami and Auburn and only Grant and Ryan escaped the week with a winning record for Week 2.

Overall, Grant leads the pack and looks to build on his lead with some safety picks as seen below. The four editors seem to agree on most games, which certainly must mean that at least two or three of the teams with consensus picks will fall this weekend. USC, BYU, and MSU are on upset watch. All three games can easily go one way or another, especially with how this season has already started to shape up.

Joe Dexter is hoping to keep scratching his way back above the .500 mark after an abysmal outing in Week 2 where he went 4-7 after trying to sneak in Texas A&M and Illinois picks. Chris Holloway is betting on the Midshipmen and Volunteers to take care of business this Saturday and vault him up the leaderboard, while Joe is putting his eggs squarely in the Missouri and Florida baskets.

The records after Week 2 are:

1st: Grant Edgell (14-7)

2nd: Ryan Lephart (12-9)

T-4th: Chris Holloway (11-10)

T-4th: Joe Dexter (11-10)

Below are this week’s selections in full. Ohio State is part of the challenge this week, therefore there are only 10 games on the slate instead of last week’s 11. Check back next week for Week 4 selections and Week 3 results.

Looks like I'll be cheering for Florida and Navy to pull out the road wins!
