SALT LAKE CITY — For the second straight week, BYU fans staked its claim as the top fan base following yet another overtime win for the Cougars.

BYU fans averaged 19.9 points per game, but that could have been significantly higher as only 43.8 percent of its fan base correctly predicted a win vs. USC.

Utah State fans scored 17.9 points per game to finish second while Utah finished third with 17.4. For the season, the Utes hold a slight edge over the Aggies, 21.6-21.4, while BYU's average climbed to 19.8.

Cougar fans also swept the weekly prizes, marking the second time already this season that a single fan base landed the top three spots in the weekly leaderboard (Utah in Week 1).

This week's first, second and third place winners will get $100, $70 and $40 Visa gift cards, respectively, courtesy of Peak Orthopaedics, which provides comprehensive joint care for the entire body from expert orthopaedic and sports medicine physicians. The overall first, second and third place winners will receive $500, $250 and $115, respectively. See KSL Pick'em for the tiebreaker rules.

Below are the results from Week 3, including the updated leaderboard from the KSL.com Sports group.
