2012 Bowl Games - Confidence Points

by Staff
December 9, 2012 (Updated through the conclusion of all bowl games)

A popular pick 'em game for college football fans is to not only pick bowl winners, but to also assign confidence points to their picks. The goal is to accumulate more points than your friends.

The format is simple - pick a winner of all 35 games and, depending on how confident you are of each pick becoming reality, rank them in order of 1-35. You assign 35 to the pick that gives you the most confidence, and assign 1 to the pick that gives you the least confidence. No number can be assigned more than once. The maximum number of points anyone can accumulate with a perfect record is 630.

Here is how the computer would rank its' picks, based on the computer's projected margin of victory for each bowl winner:
