Welcome back to the B1G Stock Market Game! Nebraska just scored another touchdown, and the Huskers' investors just scored a massive boost to their portfolio! How'd the rest of the teams do? Let's find out.

The Rules

  1. Start with an initial investment equal to the average of all current investors. This week, that’s 456 Delaney Dollars ($456DD).
  2. Select team stocks to buy.
  3. After the week’s games, sell, hold, and/or buy for the next week.
  4. Max number of any one team’s shares that you can own is 50.

Team stock value comes from Teamrankings.com. The value of each team is the inverse of their current rating (out of 130 FBS teams), so team #2 costs $129, #6 costs $125, #129 costs $2.

What Teams Should I Invest In?

Buy low, sell high. Or vice versa. Buy shares of your own team, or feel all greasy by buying shares of your rival. While nobody can perfectly predict The Formula, team ratings are pretty much based on their game results, their opponents, and their opponents’ opponents.

Some players diversify, and others go heavy on one stock. You’ll find your niche. If you don’t like the dartboard method, you may want to check out Dead Read’s B1G Stock Report.

This Week

Look at sph climb the ranks! 7 shares of Nebraska boosted our "hand"y friend $44DD, once you account for the inevitable rutger loss. Another big winner has been the frequently sojourning Mochila, whose 9 Illini shares have gone from 19th place all the way to 2nd.

Then. There's. Maryland. From their season high price at $115DD, the Terps have sunk to penny stocks at only $49DD. Who got hit the hardest from this shit bomb? Noted Maryland fan YinzerTerp. And really, investing in your favorite team and watching them lose nearly a quarter of their value, dragging you down 10 spots in an instant, is what the B1G Stock Market Game is all about!

The opening bell has rung, here are this week’s stock prices:

Illinois 78; Indiana 102; Iowa 116; Maryland 49; Michigan 123; Michigan State 106; Minnesota 113; Nebraska 88; Northwestern 59; Ohio State 130; Penn State 125; Purdue 76; rutger 12; Wisconsin 124
