FAQs

When will my picks be available and where can I find them?

Your picks will be available to complete after Selection Sunday when the NCAA announces which teams will be participating in the bowl games, and will be open for picks until five minutes before the first game begins that day. No one may submit picks after that deadline.

How can I edit my picks?

You can update your picks up until 5 minutes before the first game of the tournament begins. At that time, picks will lock and cannot be updated again. To edit your picks, return to your picks and make the changes you'd like. Once complete, select the "Submit" button.

How can I print my picks?

If you'd like to print your picks, simply click the printer icon on your picks page.

How do I claim a prize if I win?

If you placed in your contest, congratulations! The company hosting your contest will reach out to you with more information about collecting your prize. If you do not hear from them within a week, we recommend you call that company directly to discuss prize pick up.

To log out, select the dropdown in the upper right corner of your page and choose "Log Out." The next person can then sign in. Uncertain who is currently signed in?

What do the colors on the picks indicate?

Once games conclude, the picks will change colors indicating whether you have made a correct pick or not. 

  • Green means your pick was correct
