Beat the Blogger Match-Ups: Jan 19-20

With a great slate of games coming up for the weekend, why not try and guess the winners for a chance to win a signed 8-by-10?

A load of great sporting events this weekend, from NFL playoffs to a lot of Top 25 match-ups in the college ranks. Grab a remote and enjoy.

Last week: We had a trio of winner, all of whom got 8 of the 10 games correct, plus the tie-breaker: Ryder, Don and Mark. Congrats to all.

As a reminder, contestants please post your e-mail address with your picks to be able to get addresses when you win. For those unfamiliar with the Beat the Blogger contest, the idea is simple. The Blogger posts 10 match-ups each week and then selects his choices for the winners of those match-ups. Contestants enter the Beat the Blogger contest by clicking on the “Comment” section below the post with the match-ups and then select their own winners. Please fill out the tie-breaker question at the end.

If you Beat The Blogger’s total and post the high score for the week, you win. The regular weekly prize is a signed 8-by-10 photo of a professional athlete. Now to this week’s match-ups:
