Co-winners, Jay Roberts of Bountiful and Mark Jackson of Provo each scored the Utah/Utah State game 31-17 making their tiebreaker score a "1."They both will receive $100, a Grid Picks T-shirt and pizza from Domino's. In addition, they will both get the two bonus points added to their score of 12 correct predictions. This makes them eligible for the grand prize, a trip for two to the Holiday Bowl (or comparable bowl game) awarded at the end of the contest to the player with the most cumulative points.
Ten runners-up from the pool of 41 with 12 correct picks were selected using the tiebreaker formula. Their names and tiebreaker scores are as follows:
Mark Katter, Midvale, 2; Bill Ross, Herriman, 4; Gaylene Packard, Farmington, 4; Quin Stringham, Salt Lake City, 5; Lynn Skene, Sandy, 5; Mark Goodrich, Salt Lake City, 5; Walt Mehr, Salt Lake City, 5; Stephen Hewlett, Bountiful, 5; Dean Larson, Centerville, 5 and Tina Hofmann, Murray, 5.
