This year's NFL season was filled with unexpected victories and gut-wrenching defeats. For the first time ever, we embarked on a season-long contest to find out who knows the most about football in Bismarck-Mandan, and with the regular season in the books, the results are now in.

Congratulations to John Zink of Bismarck for correctly guessing more NFL games this season than anyone else! Throughout the season, he correctly guessed the outcome of 174 out of 256 games (that's nearly 70%!). John is originally from Carrington, but has lived in Bismarck for the last 14 years and works for Midcontinent. As an avid Dolphins fan, his all-time favorite players are the great Dan Marino and cornerback Sam Madison.

John gets a catered party for 20 from Subway, a Bud Light prize pack worth over $500 and will also get to predict the halftime and final scores of the Big Game on Feb. 2. If he predicts either score correctly, he'll get $1,000, and if he predicts both correctly, he'll take home $10,000! John has said that if he wins the big cash he'd take his parents on a trip to Hawaii and save a little for summer trip to Boston to see Fenway Park.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this year's contest. Stay tuned for more exciting opportunities to win!
