Polls, Polls and Polls
You can vote on who will win this week’s games by clicking the above link. This poll is separate from the conference and non-conference poll contest that you have been voting on all summer long. The tie breaker will be whoever correctly picks the biggest upset to occur. For example if two players are tied at the top, the person who correctly predicted a 17 pt underdog to win will get the nod over someone who did not pick any upsets.
Every week I will announce the winners of the weekly poll along with the prizes. This first week the prizes are as follows:
1st Place. Complete Set of Phil Steele magazines and Polo Shirt
2nd Place. Your choice of two magazines and Polo or T shirt
3rd Place. Phil Steele.com T Shirt
4th Place. Phil Steele.com T Shirt
5th Place. Phil Steele.com T Shirt
Make sure you get in on the week one vote I will keep a running talley of the leaders during the year in two categories A) Total Wins B) Winning Percentage. I will update this weekly as well. Best of all the contest is FREE!!!
Also check out our daily poll on the homepage which you can predict which ranked team is most likely to lose to an unranked team this week. Last year you guys were able to predict several upsets and I will be keeping track on how you perform this year.

So far if the voters turn out to be right in all of the games to no surprise the SEC is number one in all 3 of the categories with a 89.58% overall mark and an impressive 75% win % against BCS conference teams. The Big 10 was a clear second in the overall record and record vs FBS teams but the Pac-10 is ahead of them with a 66.67% mark against BCS conference teams. I also thought that it was interesting that the Pac-10 played 48% of the non-conference games against BCS schools and were the only BCS conference to be above 40% in this area. The Big East had solid marks in their overall record and win % against FBS teams, but the conference is projected to be just 4-11 vs BCS schools. The MWC also according to the voters is proving agian why they are the best non-BCS conference being the only one to be above 50% in overall record.
