Congratulations to gvanneste for winning last week’s Five-Spot Challenge. His deviation of 66 was 14 better than second place tooty_pops. Gvanneste was fourth-closest to the total combined yards by both teams (722, 25 away), second closest to Jake Butt’s receiving yards (87, 1 away), fifth-closest to Sefo Liufau’s total yards (250, 28 away), and right on the mark with Jabrill Peppers’ longest return (55). He wins a prize box of product from our sponsors, Lane’s BBQ, Cultivate Coffee & Tap House, and Chayder Grilling Company.
Freezer566 was the closest to the total combined yards, just two away. Zigmun correctly predicted Butt’s receiving yards, while gvanneste, I called Wilt, and GrizzlyJFB were all just one away. Gdub18 correctly predicted Liufau’s total yards, while tooty_pops was the only one to correctly predict Kenny Allen’s longest field goal (39 yards).
All 36 contestants picked Michigan to win, and while no one got the final score exactly right, bluwolf77 was really close with his prediction of Michigan 42 – Colorado 28. The average score prediction was Michigan 42 – Colorado 15. Zigmun, sistersueblue, and imNOTonMOLLIE all correctly pegged Michigan to score 45 points, while bluwolf77 was the only one to have Colorado at 28.
This week, Michigan begins Big Ten play against Penn State, which brings the conference’s second best passing attack to Ann Arbor. Here are this week’s questions.
