Getting Started with a National College Football Pickoff

What is it?

The College Football Pickoff is a national, 13 week contest that is available to partners licensing Contests. This is a Turnkey contest that features the top 15 college football games each week. Registered users can submit picks until the scheduled kickoff time. Second Street manages the contest, updates the match-ups each week, provides national prizes, and notifies all national winners via email throughout the duration of the regular season.


What prizes are offered?

Along with the potential to win a variety of national prizes, we encourage you to also offer local prizes. This is a great way to motivate your audience to register for the contest and an opportunity to provide more exposure to your local sponsors. Second Street provides the following national prizes:

Weekly Top Score Prize - Fathead of winner’s choice (valued at $89)

Overall Grand Prize - Apple Vacations gift card (valued at $2,500)


When is the contest available? 

The College Football Pickoff will be available as a featured Turnkey contest mid-June to give you enough time to plan, sell, and promote. The contest spans the entire college football season, with the first game scheduled for August 29, 2019. All first week matchups open for picks late-July.
