SALT LAKE CITY — Utah football rolled to an impressive 52-7 win on the road over the Stanford Cardinal Friday on the effort of three running backs that each rushed for over 100 yards in the game. Tavion Thomas led the group with four rushing touchdowns in the win.

The win, among other games won over the weekend, gave Utah fans the sweep in this week's College Football Pick'em leaderboard. At the top was Michael Brinley, who finished the week with the top score of 189 points. He was followed by fellow Utes fans Jake Elm (185 points) and Sam Casaday (181).

Utah's win over Stanford netting 93% of all picks some points, with the average points earned at 22. But two local teams, BYU and Utah State, had 100% of the picks in their favor — for obvious reasons. Still, the average points earned in the BYU win over Idaho State was 34 and the average points earned in the Utah State win over New Mexico State was 37.

The biggest upset of the weekend in this week's picks was Army stealing a win away from Air Force. Only 6% of all picks had faith in the Black Knights. The average points earned in the game was only 2!

Utah fans lead the week in average points earned at 22.5, followed closely by BYU at 22.2 and Utah State at 21.5. For the season, BYU fans remain at the top with 21.3 points, followed by Utah at 20.5 and Utah State at 20.4.

Each week's first-, second- and third-place winners will get a $100, $70 and $30 Visa gift card, respectively, courtesy of Goldenwest Credit Union. The overall winners of Pick'em will receive a $500 gift card for first place, a $250 gift card for second place and a $100 gift card for third place.

Below are the results from Week 10, including the updated leaderboard from the Sports group.
