I think most of the numbers are right, but I was actually off on your score. This has been corrected. Thank you.

Here's an example of how I do this: USMstang predicted USM would win 41-10. He was off by 2 on the USM score (43-41=2) and off by 24 on the Rice score (34-10=24). So he was off by 26 overall, which was actually pretty good this week.

This is not the only way to do this. One alternative would be to base it on the margin of victory. Under this scoring method, I would have won myself, since I called for a 7 point game and just about everyone else anticipated a blowout.

We can do it that way if there's a consensus that we should. The status quo makes people think more about what kind of game will actually happen.
