Our score-keeping ghouls have tallied our 69 entries, and we are pleased to announce that Adam Andersen is the POPS PROPS VI CHAMPION. Making just his second POPS PROPS appearance, Andersen tallied 53 points and beat the field by four points, the largest margin of victory in POPS PROPS history. His name will now be added to the hallowed POPS PROPS HALL OF CHAMPIONS on the reverse side of the coveted POPS PROPS CHAMPIONSHIP DRINK COASTERS, which will be printed and mailed to our eight champions in mid-to-late February.

Wayne Bailey, Terra Dankowski, Kris Keeker and Brandon Roberts tied for second with 49 points. It was the second career runner-up finish for Kris, who also placed second in POPS PROPS I.

Andersen was the only POPS PROPS VI entrant to successfully earn a 3-point bonus for predicting that Denver linebacker Von Miller would win the Super Bowl MVP. Most of the field incorrectly guessed that the Carolina Panthers would win (65.2 percent), that the Panthers would cross the 50-yard line first (72.5), that the Panthers would score first (69.6), that the Panthers would lead at halftime (72.5), that Cam Newton would be named MVP (60.9) and that Bruno Mars would wear a hat (62.2) and a collared shirt (60.9) during halftime.
