There must have been a lot of surprised Deseret News Grid Picks players as they watched the outcome of the BYU-UCLA game, because the number of entries that picked UCLA to win the game could be counted on just a couple of hands and maybe a toe or two.
The highest score this past week was a 10; there were no 11s or 12s. Of 1,438 entries, only eight predicted 10 and 40 predicted nine correctly.The top winner is Sally Miller of Salt Lake City, who predicted 10 correctly and won in the tiebreaker with the lowest score, a 25.
Miller wins $100, a Grid Picks T-shirt and a $10 Domino's Pizza gift certificate, plus she receives two bonus points as her name is added to the list of cumulative winners.
Miller was followed by seven entrants who also predicted 10 games correctly but were edged out for first place. They were: Jason Burgess, Sandy; Mike Soelberg, West Bountiful; Kelle Pace, Bountiful; Lana Edwards, Heber City; Jonathan Smith, Murray; Mark Jolley, Salt Lake City; and Tony L. Cloward, Magna.
To round out the list of 10 runners-up, the tiebreaker formula was invoked for the 40 entries with a nine. Three entries made it into the top 10 with the lowest tiebreaker scores. These winners were: Bruce N. Peeples, Salt Lake City; Nathan Walker, Bountiful; and Michelle Whisman, Kearns.
In addition to being added to the list of cumulative weekly winners, these individuals also receive a Grid Picks T-shirt and the Domino's Pizza gift certificate.
The Grid Picks entry blank appears each Tuesday through Nov. 17. It pays to play each week as the individual with the most total points will win a trip for two to the Holiday Bowl.
Prizes will be mailed to each winner. There is a delay with the production of the T-shirts but they will mailed in the near future.
