  6. How To Play.
    • Overview. Players are assigned a rating value based on 2022 final standings and projected 2023 performances (the "Player Ratings"). Entrants must select one player from each of the ten (10) player groups to form a complete active roster. Each player group consists of five (5) college football players from the 6 NCAA® Power conferences (AAC, ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC). Points are awarded following each day that includes a college football game (see "Scoring" below).
    • Weekly Play. The Contest will separate the 2023 College Football schedule into fourteen (14) weeks ("Contest Weeks"). The weeks will run from college football games starting on Thursday, August 31, 2023 through the final game played on Saturday, December 2, 2023. Points scored each week will carry over and will be used to determine your cumulative score, minus your TWO (2) lowest weekly scores.
    • Roster Selection. Each week, an entrant may select a roster from the provided Player Groups (described above) that will reset after the end of each previous Contest Week. Player selections do not carry over from week to week, so every participant will need to log into the Website and select new players prior to the beginning of a new Contest Week.
    • Players. Power 5 Pick'em includes players on teams from the following NCAA conferences: AAC, ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, SEC, as well as Notre Dame.
    • To ensure you have the correct selections in place, verify your new lineup when you are presented with a confirmation number. If you exit the website or phone call with a Sports Agent without confirming your team selections with a confirmation number, your entry may not have a roster assigned to it.
