Buffalo Bulls Football Pick-Em: BRuWPeG Albany Results

New, 12 comments

The first week's results are in, and the best news is everyone who made a pick gets a point, thanks to unanimous faith in the Bulls and UB rewarding that faith. For those who didn't make a pick, whether you're in the table as a past picker or would be new this year, there's still plenty of time to catch up.

Heading into the game's final minutes with UB up 44-14, we had a three way tie for first place in BRuWPeG's first week. Then Jacob Martinez did his thing and flipped the table like a chessboard.

Fully six pickers earned four points this week. Most did so by hitting Albany's 14 points right-on, but longtime picker Daveysbrew hit Buffalo's higher score perfectly, and kginbeelo, our first-ever Twitter entry, was close to both teams' results and combined number.

An honorable mention goes to ukbro00, who scored only two points in a respectable start, but accurately predicted UB's missed extra point. That is how you win tiebreakers, folks.

The winner, though, thanks to Martinez' late run, was John McWhinnie, current senior at UB. Of ten pickers to earn a point for being within three of UB's score, he was the only one to also pick Albany's correctly, earns a point for being within six on total points, and of course the winner's point for a strong six points and the early lead.

So congrats to John. We await your speech, but don't get too comfortable. There's a long way to go.

The new thread for Penn State will go up later this evening.

Song of the week was nearly "On to the Next One" from Jay-Z, but I'm not about to pretend I didn't hear it for the first time while looking it up. Instead, Nancy Sinatra wins out. UB walked all over Albany, and let's hope the Great Danes and their fans remember that for a long time:
