Better late than never, the OTE staff presents our official, blog-wide bowl pick'em! We know some of you might've created your own groups or put together pools in the FanShots, and we're totally down with that, too -- this just represents a chance to win fabulous OTE prizes sponsored by Graham Filler himself!
We're not kidding: Graham has given his blessing to purchase one of these beauties from TipsyElves in the colors of your school of choice for the top finisher in our ESPN Pick'em Group:
Sizes are available in men's and women's. Neither Ohio State nor Purdue appear to be available, for reasons I have no clue about. If you are an Ohio State or Purdue fan and win, Graham will be in touch with you to work something else out.
Winner must post a picture of themselves wearing the sweater, along with a 200-word essay on why they love Off Tackle Empire.
Shut up and let me join already!

Group Name: OTE Official Pick'em
A note on the group format: It's set to limit two entries, lock the entry you submitted when bowl season starts, and be a "Confidence" picks format. The more confident you are in a game, the closer to "42" you move it. If that team wins, you get that many points! Highest score wins.
With that, have at it! Join, pick, and comment below!
