Advocate News Football Contest Cindy Austin wins in week 10


Week 10 of the Advocate News football contest saw most contestants within one or two correct predictions from the top three, as predicting college wins again proved difficult.

Cindy Austin of Wilton won first place and $25 this week, missing three games and guessing 48 for the tie-breaker.

Dave Fratzke of Wilton won second place and $15 this week, missing three games and guessing 38 for the tie-breaker.

Auston Hannes of Wilton won third place and $10 this week, missing four games and having a tie-breaker prediction of 50.
