Welcome back to another week of ECD Pick’em! Make sure to check out the video below or at YouTube.com/ECD each week for a breakdown of the previous games and what you can expect this week!
For me, the best game from the weekend was Norte Dame vs Duke. Duke came in as the unanimous #1 but ND has looked hot after getting a later start than most other ACC teams. Pat Kavanaugh and the Irish put on a show and sent Duke packing with a final score of 13-8. The rematch of this game will be highly anticipated as I am sure Duke will want to get some revenge on their home turf. In the other big ACC matchup UVA upset UNC in a 18-16 barn burner. Over in the BIG10 Ohio State beat Hopkins and Maryland beat Michigan. With Maryland at 6-0 they should be firmly seated at the #1 spot in this week’s rankings.
The hits just keep rolling this week. On Tuesday Towson and Hofstra play a mid week game. Hofstra is coming off a big CAA overtime win vs UMASS where Ryan Tierney looked unstoppable. Then over the weekend we will see more big ACC action with a showdown between Duke & UVA with Duke looking to rebound from a loss and UVA looking to build momentum. The story is the same for Cuse & UNC. Finally Maryland and Ohio State will meet for their second time as the Terps looking stay undefeated in BIG10 play.
This week we spun the wheel and will be giving away a custom Hero3.0 kit to our weekly winner. So, make sure to make your picks below and check back next Monday!
