2013 Prediction Game: Alabama at Texas A&M

Predict the score in the latest “Matchup of the Century”!

Last week's winner was strongarms86 who narrowly missed the final score of Texas A&M 65 - SHSU 28 with a prediction of 66 - 28 earning him a score of one (1).

The tie breaker answer - to "How many total yards will Johnny Manziel have?" - was 462, which was crucial this week as four (4) other guessers were within one (1) point of the actual: @economist_mike, Dixckn, Dwayne, and kcm308lr.  However, thanks to the tie-breaker, strongarms86 is the overall winner with his guess of 475 yards total (13 yards of the mark) in the tie-breaker.

There was a sprinkling (4) of Sam Houston Bearkats who participated, two (2) of which actually though the Bearkats might pull off the upset.  I applaud their team spirit.

We had 466 participants last week, and I hope we can go even higher this week due to the fervor of the Alabama Game.

On to this week's game versus Crimson Tide:

The premise is simple: you fill out the form below with your username, your prediction on the score, and the team that you root for (this won't be held against you). There will also be a weekly tie-breaker question, because unlike Soccer (the other Football), we don't allow ties in America. Your score will be the sum of the absolute value of the difference between the predicted and actual score for each team. For example: If you predict the Aggies will beat their Opponent 47-19 and the actual score was 54-13, you would recieve a score of: |47-54| + |19-13| = 13

NOTE: Like last year, I will delete the obviously fake erroneous predictions (1 to 0, 1,000,000 to 999,999, etc) and will filter out the idiots who try to be funny with their fake usernames (YourMomma, AggiesSuck, etc). It won't work, just save me a little time and don't click the link if you are going to be an a-hole...
