Ultimate Pigskin Pick ‘Em contest begins

    If you’re ready for some football, then get ready for the News-Telegram’s new Ultimate Pigskin Pick ‘Em Contest.

    News-Telegram is introducing a new football contest this year that will pay out $100 in weekly prizes — and possibly much, much more.
    The contest begins the week of Sept. 3-9, with the contest form appearing in the Tuesday, Sept. 3 issue (it will normally be in Monday’s edition but Sept. 2 is Labor Day).
    All forms must be turned in by 2 p.m. each Thursday at participating sponsor locations.
    There will be 20 games each week, a mix of NFL and college games.
    But here is the twist: Each participant will decide for each game how sure they are of the outcome and rank the games accordingly.
    The participant will list the game in which he is most sure of the outcome first and it will be worth 20 points, the next game will be worth 19, the next 18, and so on.
    The object of Ultimate Pigskin Pick ‘Em is to amass as many total points as possible.
    For 20 games there will be 210 total points. The person with the most total points for that week wins $50 cash plus a $50 gift card from a participating sponsor.
    But, there’s more. If anyone gets a perfect score, that person will win $100. Each week that no one gets a perfect score, $100 more will be added to the rollling jackpot.
    Look for the first form to be in the Tuesday, Sept. 3 edition of the News-Telegram and get ready to play Ultimate Pigskin Pick ‘Em.
