SALT LAKE CITY — Weekly staff predictions aren't new to KSL.com, but just like last year, we are excited to invite you to play along with us! KSL College Football Pick'em is a weekly contest in which fans pick the scores of five college football games: BYU, Utah, Utah State and two other prominent national games to round out the five.
This week features an added bonus right out of the gate, as in-state rivalry and bowl games are worth double points.
Here are the games for Week 1: No. 14 Utah at BYU (Thursday), Utah State at Wake Forest (Friday), Memphis vs. Ole Miss, Florida State vs. Boise State and No. 11 Oregon at No. 16 Auburn.
So pull out your crystal ball or Grays Sports Almanac, and hop on over to KSL College Football Pick'em to play along this season. Hopefully you'll win some cool prizes along the way.
This week's first, second and third place winners will get $100, $70 and $40 Visa gift cards, respectively, courtesy Peak Orthopaedics, providing comprehensive joint care for the entire body from expert orthopaedic and sports medicine physicians.
