Leroy’s popular College Football Challenge football contest returns for its fifth season this year. Last season, nearly 400 players anted up $250 apiece for a shot at the $30,000 first place prize.

The contest runs from Sept. 5 through Nov. 21 (12 weeks), with contestants picking their best seven games against the spread from Leroy’s College Challenge Card, which features up to 50 games a week.

Entries must be turned in by 4 p.m., Friday, before Saturday’s games. A contestant can submit up to five entries.

Total prize money is determined by the number of entries – 95 percent of the pool will be paid to the top 40 players, with the winner receiving 30 percent of the total.

Last year’s winner finished with a solid 54-30 record over 12 weeks, a 64 percent winning mark.
