In the end, it wasn't even close ...
Congrats to FarrHawk Engage for winning this year's BC Interruption College Bowl Pick'Em, correctly guessing the winners of 25 of 35 bowl games. FarrHawk Engage won going away, finishing with 469 points, a full 58 points clear of second place Hakstol's Middle Finger. FarrHawk Engage was one of only two entries to correctly guess the winner of more than 20 bowl games (Karbo's Set was the other).

The rest of the top 5: Hakstol's Middle Finger (411 points), FOR BOSTON from Philly (404), Go Away Spaz (404) and Karbo's Set (402).
The best part about FarrHawk Engage winning is that he stuck with BC through thick and thin, allotting 5 confidence points to a BC victory over Nevada. That's more than I can say for the rest of the top five, as Hakstol's Middle Finger (35 confidence points on Nevada), FOR BOSTON from Philly (34 points), Go Away Spaz (34 points) and Karbo's Set (35 points) all sold the Eagles' chances of victory in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. For shame.
In case you were wondering, after a fast start, I had to settle for 10th place with 391 points. Serves me right for putting 26 confidence points on Clemson over USF.
Thanks to everyone who participated this year. Final standings after the jump. Go Eagles!
