    We are officially in football season, and that means another round of the NCAA Prediction Game is upon us!

    Past Champions:
    Captain Davis: 2011, 2012
    TuBB: 2013, 2015
    riddleofsteel: 2014

    Enough jibber jabber, here's the rules.

    Points are broken down into two parts: preseason predictions, and in-season predictions.

    Preseason is broken down into four areas:

    1. Final Four: The CFP selects four teams in a playoff to determine the college football national champion. For each team you guess correctly, you get one point. You'll get an extra point if you select the national title game participants, and two more for selecting the national champion.

    2. Conference Champions: You will select your conference champions from the Power Five conferences (ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, SEC), in addition to any team from the Group of Five schools that will go to a New Year Six bowl. For each conference champion and Group of Five rep you pick, you will receive one extra point.

    3. Fantasy Team: In addition to your preseason picks, you'll also select players for three categories. We used to select quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers, in addition to team offense and team defense. However, with an influx of dual-threat quarterbacks, we are now opening all positions for every category. You can now select a quarterback to lead rushing categories, or running backs/tight ends to lead receiving, etc. You'll select players for the following categories:

    Passing Yards/Touchdowns
    Rushing Yards/Touchdowns
    Receiving Yards/Touchdowns

    For each category your player leads at the end of the season, you'll get one extra point.

    4. Heisman Pick: Finally, you will get one player to select for your Heisman Trophy winner (doesn't matter which position, freshman or 6th-year senior). If your player makes it to the ceremony in December, you will get one extra point, and two extra if he is the winner at season's end.

    Changing any preseason pick after week one of the season will result in your pick being voided.

    In-season Predictions:

    Each week, there will be at least five games to choose from. There will be a "Game of the Week" game, which will be guaranteed two points if you pick it correctly. You also get an additional point if you manage to come as close to the final score as possible.

    Most weeks, you will see games filled out with top 25 teams against one another. Those will be worth two points, but games between two unranked teams are worth one point. Those games are determined by a number of factors, such as day of the game, overall impact on standings, and spread of the game. Those games may not necessarily be pick 'ems; some will be spread games, where you have to guess if a team will cover or beat the spread. Others will be straight pick 'ems. Either way, these will be noted as the list of games are released on Sunday or Monday.

    If there is a game selected and it is on a Thursday or non-Saturday, it will also be noted on the game list. However, it is up to you to get your pick in by the time that game starts. You may miss a Thursday game, but you are free to pick the remaining games from that week.

    The in-season game point spread is as follows:

    One point: all regular season games between two unranked teams
    Two points: all regular season games between two ranked teams; Game of the Week; all conference championships with two unranked teams; all bowl games between two unranked teams
    Three points: Conference Championship Game of the Week; all bowl games between two ranked teams and any New Year Six Bowls (Rose, Peach, Cotton, Sugar, Fiesta and Orange).
    Four points: College Football Playoff Final
