— Contestants must pick the winner of one Pac-12 game each week. It is their lock of the week. If their pick wins, they advance to the next week. If the team loses, they are eliminated (unless all participants lose in the week).
— Contestants can pick a Pac-12 team only twice in the season. Martin-Rude has chosen Oregon State twice.
— Tie-breaking system: The margin difference is the tie breaker. If two or more contestants somehow last until the end of the season without getting eliminated, the margin will serve as the tie-breaker.
— If a contestant advances and then misses making a selection the following week, he or she is eliminated. Picks must be made before kickoff (the Facebook posts have a time stamp).
— Those eligible to participate MUST ENTER THEIR PICK IN THE FACEBOOK COMMENTARY SECTION AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST and weekly posts that update results. If a person does not pick a margin with their pick, they will be charged the total actual points. Example: You pick Oregon without a margin and the Ducks win 55-13, you will be charged 68 points (the amount of points in the game). If you pick Oregon by 30 and the Ducks win 55-13, you are only charged 12 points (the difference in margin). The lowest margin difference wins the tie-breaker.
— An Arizona-related prize will be rewarded to the winner.
