Welcome back to one of the most exciting editions of this season’s PSF College Football Weekly Pick’em. The staff at PSF will be picking the most total games ever this week as the schedule is stacked with solid conference games and more. Four top ten teams lost last week, and it was truly the wild week college football fans had been waiting for. We also have some big news as our staff has come up with a new format for the standings of this series. Here’s some key details you need to know about our new format:

  • We were rewarded with a point total based off of our current standing position before the format switch. 
  • We will now be rewarded with 3 points for correct PSF Game of the Week Picks.
  • We are also now being awarded points based off of how our weekly pick’em records stack up against each other. The week’s best overall record earns 10 bonus points, and then the total decreases as we go down the list of records. 

Now here’s an updated look at the PSF CFB Pick’em Standings with the new format after 7 weeks of football: 

  1. Jon Butler (196 points)
  2. Dustin Beard (182 points)
  3. Heath Kyser (176 points)
  4. Tristan Beckmann (168 points)
  5. Chris Chastain (160 points)
  6. Jack Geary III (150 points)
  7. Eric Jensen (145 points)
