This week Kerry Knakmuhs was the only one to have 15 right. Kristi Butler and Nate Knakmuhs continued to stay in the lead with 113 points. Well this is it folks, you better sharpen your pencils as this is the last week of the contest. Good Luck to all. It looks like all of our leaders have a shot at it. Well the Gophers gave Michigan State all they wanted Saturday, losing to the 10th ranked team by a touchdown. Also they were still in it right to the end. The Vikings were off last week, but they come back to a real test when they take on the Cheese I Heads on Monday night. It would be great to knock them off.
