The entrant with the most points at the end of the series of games will be the winner, subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the contest rules.

8. For each game winner an entrant correctly predicts, the entrant will receive points based on the following point schedule:

Five (5) BCS Bowl Games – 6 points each 

Thirty (30) Other Bowl Games- 1 point each

10. In the event of a tie:

a. the entrant with the lowest total "Score Approximation" for the one designated tiebreaker game will be declared the winner.  Score approximation is determined by (i) subtracting an entrant’s choice for the score for the winning team from the actual winning team's score from the one designated tiebreaker game and (ii) then squaring this value, and (iii) then, subtracting the entrant’s choice for the score for the losing team from the actual losing team's score in the tiebreaker game and (iv) then squaring that value.  Adding the numbers in I through iv above together determines entrant’s "score approximation".
