No tie-breaker was needed this week in the News & Reporter’s football picking contest as Brian Hoyle of Chester was the runaway winner.

Hoyle was alone in first place with a mark of 19-1. His only miss was Michigan State’s upset of Michigan. For his efforts, he takes the weekly $50 prize.

Six contestants were just one game back of Hoyle. Finishing with records of 18-2 were Bill Grant of Chester, Barbara McManus of Blackstock, Debra Gregory and Brandon Millwood of Lockhart, Lynn Doster of Edgemoor and George Coleman of Great Falls.

The most commonly missed games included Miami’s last-second win over Florida State, Michigan’s State’s triumph over Michigan and South Carolina’s big win over Arkansas.

Thanks to all who participated and good luck making your picks this week.
