Week 0 2023: CFB analyst picks are graded; results are in!

Week 0 is in the books and the picks from our analysts are graded. We only had a handful of picks from the analysts this week but frankly I needed to make sure my grading scripts still worked, so here we are.

Our winner this week was Pete Thamel for a handful of picks on the College Gameday podcast this week. He and Rece Davis both went 4-1 but Pete’s GDC value gave him the edge. We look forward to a full slate of games and predictions this week as we get into week 1 action!
