• WEEK TWO WINNER:  Joe Cafiero.  Long-time participant, Joe Cafiero, was the high scorer for the week. He led a group of seven people that went 6-0.
  • The group and lock winning percentages were outstanding:  58.1% and 68.5%, respectively. Its the highest winning percentage we’ve seen since Week 10 of 2020. Excluding 2020 (since the format was different), you’d have to go back to Week 5 of 2019.
  • 83 people scored at least 100 points, which is the highest mark since Week 3 of 2022.
  • The average score, 71.8, is also the best since Week 3 of last year.
  • Nobody went 0-6. It’s the first time that has happened since Week 13 of 2021.
  • The Majority 6 rebounded this week with a 4-2 record.
  • The most popular PP6 pick of the week, and probably the most popular pick in the country, was Colorado. Prime and Co rewarded their following with an easy victory over Nebraska.
  • OU was the 2nd most popular pick of the week. They used a late push to cover the spread.
  • OU and Colorado accounted for 38% of the locks, hence the great lock record.
  • SMU was the only team that didn’t receive at least one lock.
  • Six underdogs received more picks than the favorite. Three of the six covered.
  • Washington State and Cincinnati were the only two underdogs that received more locks than the favorite. They both won outright and earned bonus points.
  • Utah became the biggest loser of the year. They received 84% of the picks in their game against Baylor. They scored two late touchdowns to win the game, but they failed to cover.
  • There were 5 SEC schools on the list. They only went 1-4 against the spread, and they lost their two marquee matchups outright. Their non-conference struggles will be conveniently forgotten as the season wears on.
