WEEK FOURTEEN WINNER: Justin Hess. He was the only person to go 6-0, outscoring the next closest competitor, Rick Wampler, by 22 points.
The group winning and lock winning percentages were easily the worst of the year: 39.8% and 33.1%, respectively.
Eight people went 0-6.
The four most popular picks were ATS losers: Navy, Clemson, Wisconsin and OSU.
Michael Patton took over 1st place in week two and had not relinquished it all year…until…Rick Wampler dropped 109 points in the final week to edge him out by 2 points. 2 measly points. Third place, Travis Phelan, finished 91 points behind Michael.
The Lock Race: Going into the final week, Andrew Rowlan had a 1/2 game lead over Zach Favors and Justin Darr. All three of them lost their locks, which opened the way for Jason Hall and Jeff Harbison. There was a three way tie for the best record between Jason Hall, Jeff Harbison and Andrew Rowlan. The tie-breaker, most overall points, put Jason in 1st place, Jeff in 2nd place and Andrew in 3rd place. Only the top two spots get paid.
The Best Finish Award: Cody Miller won the prize with a solid 18-6 record.
The Elimination Bracket: The championship game was a massive dud. When you score the 2nd most points of the entire group, as Rick Wampler did, you are almost assured of the victory. When your opponent, John Eanes, goes 0-6, well…
Only 2 people in the top 20 of the final standings won a week.
