BTT Prediction Contest

(UPDATE: Contest is closed for new entries. Good luck to everyone who participated.)

It's time for the second annual BTT prediction contest. It's easy to enter and a nice warmup for the brackets you'll be filling out next week. I haven't decided on a prize yet, but, rest assured, there may or may not be one. (UPDATE: Winner gets a $25 gift certificate to the BTN store. If a writer wins, prize goes to highest scoring reader.)

Anyway, it's a simple process. Pick the winners of each of the games in the comments. Pick the total score of the championship game for a tiebreaker. Points awarded start at one for the first round and increase by one in each subsequent round.

Here are the games:

G1: 8 Iowa vs 9 Illinois

G2: 5 Indiana vs 12 Penn State

G3: 7 Northwestern vs 10 Minnesota

G4: 6 Purdue vs 11 Nebraska

G5: 1 Michigan State vs G1 Winner

G6: 4 Wisconsin vs G2 Winner

G7: 2 Michigan vs G3 Winner

G8: 3 Ohio State vs G4 Winner

G9: G5 Winner vs G6 Winner

G10: G7 Winner vs G8 Winner

Champ: G9 Winner vs G10 Winner

My picks as well as the rest of our writers' picks are after the jump.
