SALT LAKE CITY — It's been a wild couple of weeks since we last checked in on the KSL.com College Football Pick'em.

Several bowl games have been canceled due to COVID-19 and we've had to shuffle things around a bit. So if you've picked all the bowl games for the rest of the season, make sure to check back with all the changes to ensure you get all the points possible.

Due to COVID-19, there have been some major updates to three of the bowl games. The Barstool Arizona Bowl has been canceled, while two other bowl games have had alternate teams selected.

In the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl, No. 17 Wake Forest will now take on Rutgers. In the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl, Washington State will now play Central Michigan. And with the Arizona Bowl canceled, we've selected the VRBO Citrus Bowl as its replacement, featuring No. 15 Iowa and No. 22 Kentucky.

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.

Each week, we'll release the KSL.com sports staff picks for you to see. Can you do a better job than us? Probably, but that's the fun of it all.
