With BullsOnParade96 leading second-place UndercoverBull by a score of 8568.27 to 2289.75, this season would appear to be pretty much decided. But remember there are higher stakes for bowl season, which starts next week.

9.6. During the last week of the season, weekly betting requirements raise to: 25% - 50% of your entire bankroll or $250-$500, whichever is higher; 5 bets overall; and 2 wagers involving an AAC team.

So our leader will have to put over 2,000 units at risk, depending on what his total is after week 16. Other players can bet more too - half of their bankroll at the end of this week - and a comeback isn’t impossible.

Remember also that you can enter your bets on AAC bowl games early. The Potato Bowl (Tulane-Nevada), Boca Raton Bowl (BYU-Central Florida), Montgomery Bowl (FAU-Memphis) and New Mexico Bowl (Hawaii-Houston) are all available for early betting, even though the games aren’t played until Week 17 (bowl week). They will count towards meeting bet requirements for both Week 16 and Week 17. With SMU having passed on bowl season, that leaves only Cincinnati’s and Tulsa’s bowl games available to meet the 2 AAC bets requirement.

The cancellations bet will be offered for bowl season. There has already been one cancelled bowl game: the Frisco Bowl, which would have been SMU vs Texas-San Antonio. UTSA will now play in the First Responder Bowl instead.

Yes, two of BullsOnParade96’s single-game parlay bets have already been cancelled. By rule, those bets still counts towards meeting weekly minimum requirements.

Because bowl season starts Monday night, I will wrap up Week 16 and announce bowl season as quickly as possible Saturday night/Sunday morning. Again, you can bet on AAC bowl games early; if you don’t bet any of the pre-Christmas games, your only option to meet the “two AAC bets” requirement will be the post-Christmas Cincinnati and Tulsa bowl games.
