The boys of the Bucket Squad Sports Reports (your #1 source for all things sports) are back to kickoff the first big weekend of college football and run back our season long betting competition on SEC football. For those who missed out on last year's contest, Jacob Perry took home the crown with an overall win percentage of 63.3 percent. For the rest of us, hopefully the results will be different in 2021.
