    CFB Bowl Knockout Contest

    Entry: $40 per entry. 3 for $100.

    You must pick one team to WIN each day of the College Bowl Season (13 days total). No point spreads. If that team wins, you advance to the next day. If they lose, you are eliminated. If all entries in a given day are eliminated, they will all be allowed back into the contest the next day.

    On days with 5 or more games, you must make 2 picks. These days are 12/15, 12/29, 12/31 and 1/1. If no entry has 2 winning picks, all those with one winner will advance to the final day.

    There will be one buyback allowed after Day 1 (12/15) and that would be $60.

    PICK DEADLINE

    Picks are due at Noon ET the day of the games, unless there is a Noon game scheduled that day, from which all picks are due by 9AMET. Submit picks early, you can always change them.
    Picks can be submitted via e-mail, text or Reddit message.

    After the deadline has passed, a spreadsheet will be sent with everyone’s picks listed. Please verify your picks for any errors. If there is an error, I will correct, however once the first game of the day kicks off, the spreadsheet becomes final, regardless of error.

    Splits/chops will be honored when the field becomes small, but any such split must be unanimously agreed upon by all the remaining entrants.

    The contest begins on December 15th and can end with the CFB Championship on January 7th. If we have a sole survivor prior to this date, they will be deemed the winner.
    There are no administrative costs taken out of these contests. 100% of the proceeds go to the winner(s).

    When sending entries, do not mention Survivor. Use unrelated emojis for Venmo.

    If interested, the best call is to e-mail me at pinnaclesurvivor@gmail.com

    Given the CFB Season Survivor had a record prize of $11k, I expect a pretty solid prize for this contest.

    Contest open for 3 days and we are currently at 39 entries for $1,320 so far.

    My expectation was a 2k prize. It looks like it’ll be much higher.

    Solid contests run by Chomps. His World Cup survivor was fun. I’m in for the bowls!

    Contest entries will close 12/15 at 8AM. I’m not sure where you got 12/8 from but either way, that is not the date.

    I can vouch for Chomps. He runs fair and well organized contests. More importantly, you will get paid if you happen to win.

    Yeah you have BYU. If BYU loses no one survives and we are all alive tomorrow. So no matter what you will still be alive tomorrow.

    I’d just like to chime in that I AM replying. You’re not replying for a few hours so I can only reply when you do.

    Everything easymoney has said is correct. Your picks are recorded and tomorrow’s picks are due at 9am. There will be 52 left if BYU wins, 63 left if BYU loses bc everyone will be back in. Please try a different email or check spam bc it’s weird that you’ve gotten all the other emails except today’s, and I haven’t deleted you from the mailing list.
