    Post your best prediction of the final score for this game. We will announce winners after the game.

    To see last week’s winners, click here and scroll down: https://wearesc.com/forum/index.php?threads/the-unofficial-week-2-game-prediction-thread-stanford.61983/page-8


    The Basic Rules of tabulation this week will be as follows:
    *We will track predicted scores (one guess per person) and come up with a winner by 'least cumulative variance.' That is, the real variance of each team's guess added together.
    *If two people have given the same score, then the first one that gave the score is the winner. Other than that, there could be co-champions. if two people have given different scores, but have the same cumulative variance.
    *Edits to posted scores will be allowed until game time.
    *If the least cumulative variance happens to pick the wrong winner, they will be awarded "Closest to the Pin,' but the overall winner must guess the winning team correctly.
    *A 'Most Wrong' Award will be given out for the guess with the largest cumulative variance.
    *No more guesses or changes after kickoff.

    Please Observe The Following Honorary Rules:
    -The Cardinal & Gold Rule - Whole numbers only. Fractional numbers will be rounded up.
    -The NorCalSurfer Rule – No ‘Negative’ score predictions
    -The BigGuard Rule - If someone has two guesses in the same post, for humor or other purposes, I will use the first guess unless it is very obvious that the 2nd one is the 'real' guess... so try to be clear.
    -The Trojan Eternity Clarification – If a contestant inadvertently (or otherwise) makes more than one pick, the last pick will be the one used for the purposes of the competition. Technically, this would be the “last” pick.
    - The Lizard King Rule – In order to qualify for the honorary title of most wrong, guesses must be at least somewhat within reason. Nothing over 75 points scored for instance is probably reasonable for either team this week.
    -The Lizard King Clarification – If a player picks a score over the above stated maximum, they will not be considered for the Coveted Title of Most Wrong for that week. Players will get one mulligan per season on this clarification rule.
    -The Globe Rule – If more than one player has the same net differential, but at least one has picked the correct team to win...then no “Closest To The Pin” Trophy will be awarded that week.

    A Season Long Champion will also be crowned:
    -each week we will calculate the 'average' net points for any participant that has picks in at least 2/3 of the available games.
    -We will include all games through the regular season in this format. However, once any playoffs or post season games begin, you MUST play those games in order to continue on to become the season champion. It's sort of like the Fed Ex Cup.
    - Last year the Season Long Prediction Czar was @socallvr
    - This year in addition to year long bragging rights and the knowledge that you really are better than everyone else, Erik will also award a WeAreSC polo shirt to the winner.
    - It's a long season, don't give up. Have fun and thanks for playing

    Beat the Cougars!

    Yikes, I just ran my numbers and this is no pushover game. I want to believe last night was the start of something sustainable, but until I see it repeated regularly, I'm not sure that can be counted on.

    This is the 2019 team's first road trip and more importantly the freshman QB's first road trip...I guess better Provo than Husky Stadium...but still.

    I'm concerned, but I'm going to go with USC 30 BYU 24

    Byu will sell out to stop the pass and tough it out, but the run game sparks and sets up an uptempo massacre (Don't fail us now Offense/Defense).

    BYU will be pumped and it’s at their house. After beating Tennessee, they will believe they will win this.

    Starts off rocky, but the team settles down and wins a close one: BYU 24, good guys, 28
