MONROE, La. (KNOE) - It's Week 5 of "Beat the Ace"!
Ladies and gentlemen, you Beat the Ace again!
Trounced him, even!
We had to break it to the Ace this week that he's facing his toughest competition yet. 2017's Week 4 contest is proof positive of the awesome augury abilities of the #KNOEBlitz fanbase!
Sure, the Ace did better this week, perfectly predicting 8 of 10 teams who went on to notch another mark in their "win" columns. But 'better' is a relative term and when it comes to you folks, 'better' just wasn't good enough. (Sorry, Ace... We still love you!)
Five fans formed flawless forecasts! 10 of 10!
80+ others nixed the Ace by nailing nine!
A quick shoutout to our Week 4 perfectionists:
Deshawne L., of West Monroe
Jude J., of Rayville (Yes, the same Jude from Week 3!)
Derek W., of Rayville
Andy F., of Delhi
Ben R., of Olla
As you may know... in the event of a tie, the computer randomly chooses a winner. That's not going to happen this week. We've got an eleventh estimation for your evaluation.
There might even be a curveball or two in this week's match-ups. (Yes, we know, wrong sport. Just go with it.)
