The annual Beat the Geek contest is back for another year and there has been a slight change made to the picks.
It has been pointed out that usually the Geek's picks are all for bowl games that start after the Dec. 24 deadline and yesterday's picks had one bowl game starting on Dec. 15.
The Geek regrets the error and has amended his picks slightly and removed the New Mexico Bowl from the list. This year's first contest will be the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl between Central Michigan and Western Kentucky on Dec. 26 and the Military Bowl between San Jose State and Bowling Green has been added to the list. A new entry sheet will also be posted online.
PLEASE USE THIS NEW ENTRY SHEET TO TURN IN YOUR PICKS.
All you have to do is fill out the entry sheet that's displayed here and turn it into the news by Dec. 24. If you mail your entry, it must be postmarked by that date.
