An Annual tradition for members of the D3boards.com is the conference “Pick ‘Em” contest. Here is a link to the NWC Pick ‘Em board, however, you must be a registered member in order to see or post on these boards. It only takes a minute to register and doesn’t cost a dime. NWC Pick ‘Em
Wildcat11 is still holding down the 5th spot in the NWC pick ‘em contest and is still only 3 points off the lead. Most of the picking contestants are in agreement with the NWC game but are divided with the Bonus Pick and it could shake up the standings a little. Here are WC11’s lock-down picks
Whitworth over UPS. If the Loggers were going to make any sort of splash in the NWC this year they HAD to beat Menlo last week and it didn’t happen. Now they get to travel across Washington in another long road trip and go to 0-2 in conference play.
Willamette over PLU. The Lutes defense has been pretty solid this season but they have really been void of any offense. Willamette doesn’t get tripped up looking past the ‘Lutes and will come to the ‘Catdome with a glossy 7-0 record.
Bonus Game: Occidental over Chapman. This is a huge game for Chapman in terms of a Pool B playoff bid (Chapman is an independent). They have to beat Occidental in order to really be a contender for one of those playoff slots. Oxy is in control of the SCIAC but this game is big in terms of having a claim towards a potential home playoff game. I got burned picking against Oxy last week but won’t this time as the Tigers will get past the Panthers.
