(DISCLAIMER: This game is for entertainment purposes only. No actual money is being wagered.)

Again, I have to start by apologizing for the website’s down time this week. The security certificate expired, and my support requests to update it to the current one have not be expedited. You can use the site normally by switching from https:// to http://, or just ignoring the browser warning you get. protectyouru.net does not contain any information, or ask for any information, other than your PYU-specific loginID and password (and the password is stored in an encrypted form).

It looks like most of you have already figured this out, because we have a typical number of bets entered this week. The cert should be in place by Monday. I hope.

In light of recent events, I want to remind everyone of this official rule:

9.5.1. The list of teams that count as AAC teams will not change during the season, even if realignment occurs, or if the nature of conference play is redefined during the season.

Needless to say, this has happened. But games like this week’s FAU-Charlotte and Rice-UAB won’t count as AAC games until they are officially added to the league.

BrianK19 is Week 8’s early leader. BullsOnParade96 has already lost a chunk of last week’s huge win on Louisiana-Monroe.
