After a strange week in which the experts picked games between relatively unknown college football teams and did not fare particularly well, this week should help them get back in the groove with a slate of games featuring very well known teams.  Eric Dannenbaum has sprung his way into second after another 5-3 week, now only trailing sports editor, Brandon Lapensohn, by two games.  Only two experts are over .500 so far, as Clucko has managed to claim sole possession of last place, a place he never found himself last year.  At this point the editors are only separated by four games, however each week the margin has grown slightly larger.   Perhaps this week—where only two games were picked unanimously—will provide the separation that prior weeks lacked.


Brandon: 18-14 (.563)
Eric: 16-16 (.500)
Will: 15-17 (.469)
Holden: 14-18 (.438)
Dhruv: 14-18 (.438)
