2021 Event Summary: College Football

Status: Completed

RULES: COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Q1: 2021 Season
The top ~60 teams have been seeded according to a composite of current rankings. No team is seeded higher than 40.

Select eight teams totaling at least 170 seed points.

Your eight teams will earn points as follows:
...7 pts for each win
..18 pts for a conference title*
...5 pts for a bowl berth**
..10 pts for a playoff berth**
..12 pts for a bowl or playoff win**

* if the conference plays a title game, the team has to win the title game; independents cannot claim this bonus

** A team can earn a bowl bonus or a playoff bonus, but not both. The berth and win bonuses will only be applied for the first round of the playoff. No bonus will be given to teams who make or win the Championship, altho we will pick that game separately.

There are a few more teams out there. If you wish to select an at-large team which we didn't load, just email sportsdecathlon@yahoo.com and we'll get it loaded as a 40-seed.

Picks lock this Thu 9/2 at 4p Pacific

Q2: 2021 Bowls and Playoffs
The NCAA has confirmed 42 FBS bowl games; as usual, we pick against the spread. This year, we are breaking the games up into 4 groups:
* Group 1 - 18 Bowls from Dec 17 thru Dec 27. Pick any 6, 10 pts each for beating the spread
* Group 2 - 18 Bowls from Dec 28 thru Jan 4. Pick any 6, 12 pts each
* Group 3 - The 4 major Bowls excluding the CFP Playoff games. Pick all 4, 15 pts each
* Group 4 - CFP playoffs (semifinals and championship). Pick all 3, 15/30 pts each

In Groups 1 and 2, you may choose any 6 winners. You can even pick both sides of a matchup if you'd like to lock in a loss. In Groups 3 and 4, you must choose a winner for each game - ignore seeds; they only exist to ensure that you pick one team from each game. Your regular season picks will continue to earn bonuses for winning bowl games outright.

Each group will lock just before its first game. We will send out reminders when groups open or are close to locking.

Final Note: If a game is cancelled due to Covid, picks for both teams will earn 0 points. If a game is rescheduled, Decathlon Management will make an executive decision on how to proceed based primarily on how much time there is left to re-pick.
