The Crimson Tide beat the Fighting Irish 42 to 14 last night, giving Alabama their third BCS Title in four years.
Of course, we’re more interested in the winners of our College Football Contest and Sweepstakes…
First Place (iPad Mini) = Everman81 aka Sheri Owen
Second Place (XBOX) = VikingFan aka Allen Olson
Third Place ($150 Restaurant Voucher) = GoNoles aka Andy Lewis
Sweepstakes Winner (Apple TV) = Ramona Katsadas
Congratulations to all of you. We will be in touch with each of the winners individually later today to let you know how to claim your prize.
We’d also like to thank everyone who took part in both contests. As you can see from the leader board, it was a really close contest even at the very end – and even second and third place had to be settled by the tiebreaker.
We hope you all enjoyed taking part in the. If you did, then we have some good news: we’re going to be doing it all over again very soon when we launch our March Madness Contest! Keep an eye on our Facebook page or on Twitter for the latest news! We’d love to have you take part all over again.
Texas A&M were victorious over Oklahoma. Ole Miss beat Pittsburgh. Arkansas squeaked a win against Kent St. The weekend’s games have definitely resulted in some changes in our College Football Bowls Contest leader board, but Everman82 is still sitting pretty at the top – now two points ahead of everyone else, which means she’s guaranteed to win first place. Congratulations!
Meanwhile, depending on how things play out, anyone currently tied for second or third place could also find themselves a winner after tonight’s National Championship Game. It’s almost certainly going to come down to a the tie-breaker in determining who wins what, so make sure that you log in and double check your answer to the tiebreaker question here.
Here’s a full list of everyone currently ties for either second or third place: GoNoles, Taylor entry 1, TheByrdMan, vikingFan, amelia123, Coach T, firstname.lastname@example.org, David, FootBall Queen, galwayboy, mgaddington, Nick B, NTC, phraseman, Red hot mama, and spencerc15.

There are just four games left, including tonight’s Cotton Bowl clash between Texas A&M and Oklahoma – right here in Arlington! Everman82 is still clinging on to first place on our leader board, but the number of people chasing her in joint second and third place is growing. I predict that we could be looking at a very different leader board come Monday morning. In fact, it could come down to the wire – possibly even to the tie breaker for the National Championship game!
Here’s a full list of everyone (mathematically speaking) who is still in the chase: Black Wisdom, FootBall Queen, GoNoles, NTC, spencerc15, TheByrdMan, vikingFan, amelia123, Brynnboo, email@example.com, galwayboy, mgaddington, Red hot mama, Taylor entry 1, WW Chicken Dinner, belieber_
