Jordan Fulkerson might be one win away from becoming the first ESPN Streak for the Cash winner. But Katie Kaufmann also could win the $1 million grand prize with two correct picks Sunday.
Fulkerson, from Louisville, Ky., successfully picked Boston College to beat Wake Forest on Saturday to get his 24th win in a row. The 25th consecutive correct pick could be worth a $1 million prize.
Fulkerson began his current streak on Oct. 29 with a soccer pick (three goals or more in the Ajax-Heracles Almelo game). His 22nd win was a rugby game Saturday morning (South Africa over England) and he got to 23 with Clemson’s 13-3 win over Virginia. That tied him with Scott Conant, who had 23 wins heading into Saturday.
Conant lost his streak when he picked Wake Forest, which lost to Boston College 24-21.
During his streak, Fulkerson has picked seven NBA games, six college football games, six NFL games, two golf tournaments (Davis Love with a better nine-hole score than Chris DiMarco on Oct. 30 and Billy Andrade with a better nine-hole score than Carlos Franco on Oct. 31), the rugby game, the initial soccer game and the presidential election (where he had Barack Obama strait up over John McCain on Nov. 4).
Give it up for Big J and lets hope he can get #25. It is obvious he has not been visiting the pinkie and stealing Fox’s Lockses due to Fox’s struggles lately.
