Taylor wins Pigskin Contest tiebreaker

Forrest City’s Melvin Taylor and Wynne’s Josh Fox played to a tie in last week’s Professor Pigskin Football Contest with each missing just one of the 14 selected games. That brought the tie-breaker game, Wynne vs. Morrilton into play and both Taylor and Fox were correct in picking Wynne over Morrilton. Taylor’s guess at the final 17-14 score, was within seven points of the final, making Taylor the outright winner of the $50 cash prize. Five readers missed just two of last week’s Pigskin games. This week’s selection of games can be found inside today’s Times-Herald.
