2014 Predict the Score: #21 Texas A&M at #7 Alabama

Predict the score of this week’s matchup that has the #21 Texas A&M Aggies (5-2) traveling to #7 Alabama (5-1)

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Big Winner

Last game's winner was Mwhitt6 (Ole Miss) who picked the Rebels to defeat our Aggies 35-11 earning him a nearly spot-on score of one (1). The tie breaker answer - to "How many receptions will Texas A&M Running Backs catch?" - was 6 according to the game's stat log.

Make Your Prediction

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 receive 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...
