Fresno State Score Contest Results and Season Pick 'em Update

New, 12 comments

3 fans picked FSU to win, 53 picked NU

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami score prediction contest will open this afternoon.

The results of the Fresno State score prediction contest are kind of interesting.  They say a lot of the wisdom of crowds.  The average NU score prediction was 39.1 and the average FSU score prediction was an astounding 18.9.

I think the takeaway is that as individuals we're not particularly good at forecasting, but when a large group of folks get together the results tend to regress towards a more reasonable prediction.

Congrats to huskerraider who predicted a 52-21 Nebraska victory for a total error of 5 points.

For the season long pick 'em contest, the logjam at the top has gotten a bit smaller.  We're down to just a 65-way tie for first place.  Picking the wrong winner makes a big difference in the point standings.  I expect that we will be down to a smaller group of leaders after the Miami game. It's going to take an upset of some kind to really narrow things down.
