    No spread, just win/lose. Points are calculated from the confidence points on the ones you pick correctly.

    Actually you can make pics up till just a bit before game time--- but as more bowls accumulate it is more difficult to move your very important confidence points.

    Say you don't pick the NM Bowl on the 15th. You will "lose" and that line will be unavailable for confidence.

    For me, this year has fewer "sure things". (Not that I did all that great last year :huh)

    Things kick off today with the New Mexico Bowl-- Nevada vs Arizona.

    I know you all have cleared out your schedule, for truly America's Premier Bowl Game.

    Worked last night, so this is my NM Bowl experience today.



    :snore

    Glad it was a good one. Glad I picked right (barely) with mid level confidence points. :lol3
