Inside NU Bowl Pick 'Em Challenge

Put your college football knowledge up against that of other Northwestern fans and Inside NU staff members!

As you are probably aware, college football bowl season is here. Northwestern learned Sunday that it is headed to Tampa and to the Outback Bowl to face the Tennessee Volunteers, and all around the country, others were booking late December or early January trips to sunny, warm and exotic locales... or to New York or Detroit.

The point is, even though the Wildcats are atop your priority list, there's plenty of other college football to enjoy over the next month. There are a record 41 bowls this year, which is both ridiculous and wildly entertaining. So let's have some fun with them!

We've created our own ESPN Bowl Mania group for Inside NU members and Northwestern fans of all kinds (Tennessee fans, you are cordially invited to join as well). It's your chance to put your knowledge gained from all those hours in front of the TV on display, or to just throw darts at a wall and get lucky.

Unfortunately, there's no prize like there was for our Bracket Challenge, but at stake are infinite glory and a place in the Inside NU record books! So come join the party! All you have to do is:

1. Join the group, which you can find by clicking here. The group name is Inside NU, and the password is gocats.

2. Create an entry. Feel free to name it whatever you wish.

3. Make your picks! The competition format is a confidence pool, meaning you pick the winner of each game straight up, but then rank the games 42-1 based on how confident you are in your pick. The full guidelines can be found here.

If you have any questions, post them in the comments, or reach out to us on Twitter or Facebook.
