B1G Survivor 2023 Week 9

Week 8 Winners' pool: The Minnesota Golden Gophers ousted 14 contestants in dramatic fashion as a potential game winning punt return for a touchdown was called back on account of an invalid fair catch signal. Live by special teams, die by special teams. The Losers bracket awaits you.

Elsewhere, 2 contenders had to sweat out a last minute come back victory by Wisconsin over Illinois to advance to next week. Nebraska had an easier time dispatching Northwestern sending 12 more individuals to week 9, 2 folks didn't have to sweat at all in watching Rutgers handily dispatch Indiana, and Michigan had no trouble at all throttling Michigan State advancing 5 people in the process.

There was 1 non-pick this week as well as 1 errant repeat pick that was not changed.

[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.]
