Protect Your Unit Week 2 Picks Thread

But more importantly, take all precautions and be safe this weekend.

NCAA Football: Ohio State at Oklahoma
Oklahoma-Ohio State is a big game this week.

Due to the impending threat of Hurricane Irma, Week 2 will be an optional week in Protect Your Unit. You do not have to play, or use a bye week. We will probably do the same for Week 3, so those affected can deal with the aftermath. Take every caution and be safe, you guys.

Several of this week's games were cancelled:USF-UConn, Miami-Arkansas State, Northern Colorado-Florida, Louisiana-Monroe-Florida State, and Memphis-Central Florida. All wagers on these games were set to 0, so players who bet them can bet again if they wish. This is per the new rule 13.6.1:

In a strange move, Florida International (who else?) relocated their home game against FCS Alcorn State to Legion Field in Birmingham. The protectyouru.net website has been updated to reflect all this information.

So, you can re-bet the fake money you put on these games, but you don't have to. It's not a big deal anyway, since I'm letting this be a free week, but we do stick to the rules.
