Week 6: NWC Pick 'Em

An Annual tradition for members of the 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

So old Wildcat11 moved up two spots to number 6 (out of 17) in the NWC pick ‘em contest but only 3 points off the lead so I’m within strking distance at the halfway mark of the season. So here are WC11’s picks of the week *cue the music*:

Menlo over Puget Sound: I’m not totally basing this pick off of last week’s Linfield/Menlo game but for the fact the Menlo is at home and gave the Loggers a facial last year down at Menlo. Due to scheduling UPS is making the back-to-back trips to Atherton and that gives favor to the Oaks. It’s going to be a close one.

Willamette over L&C: The Bearcats keep the wagon wheel and the only drama is if the Pios will be able to score any points.

Gustavus over PLU. The MIAC team is visiting PLU for the very first time and I’m taking the visitor. PLU will get better as the year continues but they are going through “youth” pains this season and that will show in their record.

Bonus Pick: Redlands over Oxy. This is the Game of the Year in the SCIAC and should determine who will win the SCIAC championship and have the inside track to an auto bid. Even with Redland’s explosive QB, Dan Selway, out with a foot injury I’ll take the Dawgs defense and run game over Oxy.
