Pac-12 football pick ‘em contest

Since we're all about interaction here at Sportslink, I decided it'd be fun to let you, the readers, pick Pac-12 games this year — both straight-up and against the spread — for the duration of the season, and see who ends up on top.

I'll be publishing my weekly picks in Thursday's paper, and I'll pass them along on the blog once they're available. But anyone who wants to join in can simply leave their predictions — with score, please — in a comment on this post. We'll do one of these each week.

Since it's short notice with the season only a day away, we'll simply stipulate that you have to participate in at least 10 weeks to be eligible for the grand prize (which is … wait for it … an acknowledgement of your achievement at the end of the season).

Here are this week's games, with betting lines (for entertainment purposes only, as they say) courtesy of


Northern Colorado at Utah (no line), 4:15 p.m.

Rice vs. UCLA (-16), 4:30 p.m.
