RULES: COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Q1: 2022 Season
The top ~80 teams have been seeded according to a composite of current rankings. No team is seeded higher than 40.

Select eight teams totaling at least 130 seed points.

Your eight teams will earn points as follows:
...6 pts for each win
..15 pts for a conference title*
...4 pts for a bowl berth**
..15 pts for a playoff berth**
..10 pts for a bowl or playoff semifinal win
..15 pts for an NCAA Title

* 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.

There are a few more NCAA football 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 Sat 8/27 at 9a Pacific

Q2: 2022 Bowls and Playoffs
The NCAA has confirmed 41 FBS bowl games; as usual, we pick against the spread. This year, we are breaking the games up into 4 groups:
* Group 1 - 17 Bowls from Dec 16 thru Dec 26. Pick any 6, 10 pts each for beating the spread
* Group 2 - 18 Bowls from Dec 27 thru Jan 2. 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 win 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.

Groups 1 and 2 are open now. Groups 3 and 4 will open closer to Christmas. 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, 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.
