B1G Survivor 2022 Week 13

USA TODAY Sports

My final wrap up post will be several days late as I'll be away from my spreadsheet for Thanksgiving week and updating that from my ipad or phone isn't going to happen.

Week 13 will be determinative in who you have left to pick in week 14, so your choice this week will also indicate your choice next week (if your week 14 team isn't in the championship game, it is a loss)

Week 12 recap:

Congratulations for a good run to dlrhawks who had a choice of either Michigan State or Indiana and unfortunately chose the Spartans who lost to the Hoosiers in double overtime.

riclang had to sweat out a close win by Michigan over Illinois to move on and AutoRecBot advanced with an Ohio State victory over Maryland.

Now we are down to 2. Both AutoRecBot and riclang have Northwestern (1 win) left. AutoRecBot's other option is Indiana (4 wins) while riclang has Nebraska (3 wins).

Please note the Nebraska game is on Friday afternoon.

Here's how they got here:

If 1 person picks Northwestern and the other avoids the Wildcats like the plague, an outright winner will be crowned if 1 wins and the other loses. Both winning or both losing would result in a 1st tie breaker win for the individual who did pick Northwestern.

If both contestants avoid Northwestern, the first tiebreaker is a tie and it goes to tiebreaker 2 if both win or both bow out. An outright win is possible if 1 gets a win while the other loses.

If both contenders pick Northwestern, AutoRecBot holds a 1 game advantage in the first tie breaker. riclang would have to hope for an Indiana win and a Nebraska loss to get to tie breaker 2.

So for tie breaker 2 scenarios, Nevada, Indiana, Minnesota, Rutgers and Maryland wins will help AutoRecBot (also currently has a 1 win advantage in this category) while Western Kentucky, Northwestern, Iowa, Nebraska, and Illinois wins will aid riclang.

There is a third tie breaker, posted in week 1. It's whoever posts their final pick first.

[As a reminder, you may pick against a team a maximum of three times. If a teams abbreviation appears once or twice, you have picked against them once or twice respectively. When you have picked against a team for a third time that team will appear spelled out, bolded, and italicized. This will indicate that you may then no longer pick against that team.]

Here's who's left (ranked by tie breakers) along with their (Teams NOT yet picked in alphabetical order in parenthesis) [and who you've picked against in square brackets], Tie Breaker 1, Tie Breaker 2:

3 contestants were eliminated this week. One bowed out with an errant pick of Iowa losing to Minnesota, 1 chose Wisconsin to lose to Nebraska, and one picked Michigan to lose to Illinois.

2 people advanced by correctly picking Northwestern to lose to Purdue.

The games are listed above in the regular survivor pool section.
