Week 5: Clemson Beat Pick 'Em

Ready to see what the so called "experts" think about this weekend's big games?

You read their articles every single day. Now lets see if they really know what they're talking about.

CUTigers.com presents the "Clemson Beat Pick 'Em" featuring college football picks from the writers covering Clemson's 2006 season.

Featured Writers

(This week's nicknames provided by last week's winner: Brett Jensen):

Paul "Willy, can I sniff your jock?" Strelow

Eric "Power nap" Boynton

Brett "I'm never wrong" Jensen

Dan "Are you going to finish that?" Scott

Will "UNC, who's your daddy?" Vandervort

Greg "How much extra is the VIP room?" Wallace

Larry "Just for Men" Williams

Roy "Rogaine" Philpott

How it works: Each writer is asked to pick five games a week, with one pick being designated as the "lock of the week." Each correct pick receives one point. Each "lock of the week" picked correctly receives two points.

Friday afternoon all picks will be posted here on CUTigers.com. The following week, results will be posted from the previous week's picks, including updated rankings so fans can clearly see who truly knows their college football.

In addition, CUTigers.com is also allowing one Clemson fan a week (each week it will be someone different) to post their picks against the Clemson beat writers. To have a chance to be that fan, visit the CUTigers.com Premium Message Board The Valley on Friday afternoons for details.

Congratulations to Trey Judy from Concord, N.C. for being this week's fan entry!

In addition, last week's Fan Entry came in first place with a perfect 5-0 record. Jeff Heintz from Anderson, S.C. has helped "The Fan" overtake everyone on the Clemson beat in this year's contest! Check updated standings below.
