In week three of our NCAA picks, a clubhouse leader emerged and separated himself from the rest of the field after a perfect 7-0 week. EIWA correspondent Austin Sommer has sole possession of first place by two games ahead of a triumvirate of Courtney, Rachel, and Willie.
Looking at this week's picks, only one dual has a unanimous winner in Minnesota, who takes on South Dakota State. The week could swing on the Army West Point/Iowa State and North Carolina/Rutgers duals as each school has at least three staff members who picked them. Meanwhile, Robbie and Cody refused to follow the pack and went out on their own with one picks, which could end up fruitful for them or costly.
