Who Can Enter

1.         Entrants must be legal California residents who are 18 years of age or older and have lawful access to the method(s) of entry set forth in these rules.

2.         Employees of Fox Television Stations, LLC, owner of television station KTTV, and Jack in the Box (collectively, “Sponsor”), their affiliated companies, advertising and promotion agencies, and the immediate family and household members of each are ineligible.

How To Enter


4.         Only one entry per e-mail address per week. The giveaway begins at 12:01 a.m. local time on September 7, 2017, and all entries must be received by 3:00 p.m. local time on February 4, 2018 (the “Giveaway Period”).  A weekly prize will be awarded for each weekly winner during the Giveaway Period.  In addition to the weekly winners, an overall season winner will be selected. 

5.         To enter, go to www.foxla.com/contests, and select the “UPick‘em Football Challenge” link on the contests page.  Follow all instructions to register for the giveaway and create your log-in ID.  Then select the professional football teams that you believe will win their games that week (no point spreads will be taken into account) and submit your approximation of the final score of the tie-break game.  Return to the website each week during the Giveaway Period in which there are professional football games and select your picks for that week.  All picks must be submitted no later than 5 minutes prior to the start time of each game and can be submitted on a rolling basis.  Once an entrant has registered for the giveaway, for games in which the entrant has not selected picks by the pick deadline, Sponsor will assign those entrants picks using the most popular pick by participants for that game.  However, entrants are not eligible to win a weekly prize if they have more than one Sponsor generated pick in a given week. 

6.         Sponsor is not responsible for error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operations or transmission, theft or destruction or unauthorized access to or alterations of entry materials, or technical, network, telephone equipment, electronic, computer, hardware, or software malfunctions of any kind, or inaccurate transmission of or failure to receive entry, winner(s) or other giveaway information by Sponsor or entrants for any reason whatsoever.  Sponsor is also not responsible for any injury or damage to any entrant’s or any other person’s computer related to or resulting from playing or downloading any materials in the giveaway or for entries that are late, misdirected or incomplete.  All entry materials may be maintained as part of KTTV’s giveaway records.  CAUTION:  ANY ATTEMPT BY AN ENTRANT TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE ANY WEB SITE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATIONS OF THE GIVEAWAY IS A VIOLATION OF THE CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS, AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, THE SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK DAMAGES FROM ANY SUCH ENTRANT TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.  Sponsor reserves the right to cancel or modify the giveaway if it becomes technically or otherwise corrupted.

7.         One winner will be selected for each week in which professional football games are played during the Giveaway Period for a total of 21 weekly winners.  The weekly winner will be the entrant who has the highest number of correct picks for that week.  Only those entrants who have no more than one sponsor generated pick are eligible for the weekly prize.  

In the event of a tie, the weekly winner will be determined as follows:

a.         Each tied entrant’s submitted approximation of each team’s score for that week’s tie-breaker game is subtracted from the actual score that team obtained in the game, and that value is squared.

b.         The two values obtained from the process described above are then combined to get the entrant’s “score approximation.”

c.         The entrant with the lowest “score approximation” will be the weekly winner.

d.         If there is still a tie, the weekly winner will be selected by random drawing from among those who are still tied.

            One season winner will be selected based upon highest cumulative point total during the Giveaway Period.  Post-season games will have a weighted point total so that the total number of points available each week will be 16.  Each entrant’s lowest scoring 4 weeks will be excluded from the final total.  An entrant cannot win the season prize unless he or she picks at least 11 complete weeks on his or her own.  In the event of a tie, the season winner will be determined in the same manner as set forth above for the weekly winner, and the game score approximation the tied entrants submitted for the final game during the Giveaway Period will be used.  If an entrant has not submitted a score approximation for the final game, that entrant will not be eligible to be a season winner in the event of a tie.

The Prize(s)

8.         The weekly winner(s) will each receive a $25 gift card to Jack in the Box.  The overall season winner will receive a $250 gift card to Jack in the Box.  The prizes are provided by Jack in the Box.

9.         The weekly winner(s) will be selected and notified by e-mail on the Wednesday following each week of professional football games during the Giveaway Period.  The overall season winner will be selected and notified by e-mail on or about February 5, 2018.  The winner(s) must respond to prize notification within 2 days, and the winner(s) will be required to complete, sign and return a Certification of Eligibility and Release and claim the prize in the manner and within the time period communicated by Sponsor or they will be disqualified.  If a winner cannot be reached, does not respond to prize notification, or does not return the signed and completed Certification of Eligibility and Release and claim the prize within the designated time period, that prize will not be awarded.

10.       Prizes cannot be redeemed for cash or substituted for any other items by the winner(s).  The winner(s) cannot assign or transfer prize.  Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of like or greater value, including cash, for any prize, for any reason.

11.       The winner(s) is responsible for all local, county, state, and federal taxes on prizes based on the value of the prizes set forth in these rules.

12.       Only one prize will be awarded per household.  Individuals are eligible to win only one prize in a giveaway sponsored by KTTV or KCOP within any 12-month period, regardless of the number of giveaways entered.  A winner who does not return the Certification of Eligibility and Release in time is still treated as a winner for purposes of this rule and therefore will be ineligible to win another giveaway for 12 months.

Odds of Winning Miscellaneous

13.       Odds of winning depend on the number of correct entries received.
