Play the LCO News Football Pick 'Em Madness

Updated: Oct 28

Are you ready for some football fun?


It’s time to show off your football knowledge and play in the first-ever LCO News NFL Challenge Pick ‘Em Madness each week, leading up to the final week of the 2020 season. There can be only one champion. Will it be you?


Over Week 9 and Week 10, everyone will be welcome to submit their picks in the qualifying rounds. Simply pick the winners of each game and earn the most points. Each game of the week will be assigned a certain amount of points based on difficulty of picking the winner. After two weeks, the top 64 participants will enter into the March Madness-style bracket playoff for the remainder of the season.


During the playoffs and the march towards the Final Four, the field of 64 will play in heads up matches based on a seeding from the two qualifying rounds. The top 64 point earners will be randomly drawn into eight groups of eight and then seeded one through eight based on their total points in the first two rounds.


Week 11 will be the field of 64. Week 12 will be the field of 32 and then the Sweet Sixteen in Week 13. The Elite 8 will pick ‘em in Week 14. The Final Four will participate in Week 15 and the Championship Match up will pick ‘em in Week 16.


Each challenge participant who reaches the Final Four will receive a prize package listed;


The Semi-finalists will each receive a package that includes area gift certificates worth $100 to be announced next week. The 2nd place finisher will receive all the above gift certificates plus $100 in additional gift certificates. The Champion will receive all the above ($200 in gift certificates) and $200 cash from the LCO Tribe as our main Pick 'Em Madness sponsor.


Make sure to sign up for our weekly E-Newsletter to see the weekly brackets and results and to like our Facebook page to see the weekly games with the point totals post in which you have to post your picks in the comments.
