Week 16 is here! That’s the last week of the Protect Your Unit season. It includes all the bowl games, and the National Championship game between the two semi-final winners. At its conclusion, a winner will be crowned.

Different rules for Bowl Week:

  • You must spend a minimum of $250 and maximum of $500, or 25%-50% if you have more than $1000, on wagers.
  • You must make at least five wagers total.
  • At least two of those wagers must involve an AAC team.
  • Bets are not revealed until each game kicks off.

And that’s about it, really. The usual bet types, parlays, and other strategies are available. This thread will be a day-by-day update, with updated standings and results. Watch the comments section.

The standings going into the first bowl games:

ULhothot OUT

E-Dogg42 and BullsOnParade96 each won a Sudden Death bet to stay in the game. They each got an extra $500 after losing their initial $1000. They can still win the contest, but most overcome that additional $500 to do so. (E-Dogg42 also won some futures bets to stay in the black.)

ULhothot lost his Sudden Death Bet and is out for the season.

Julmisteforheisman (5.46) and LrdNorman (52.68) can bet all their remaining chips on one play if they wish to. Everyone else must make the prescribed 2/5 bets and 25%/50% total.

If you want a feel for how post bowl seasons have gone, read the threads for previous years:

The only thing I ask is, don’t talk about your picks until the game has started. Beyond that, feel free to chime in! It’s been a fun season and I’m hoping for an exciting conclusion. This post will stay on the main page until the season ends.

Good luck, everyone!
