The Interception Return for Touchdown (PICK SIX) is not just the Greatest Play in all of sports, but also the namesake of our website. Each week we will honor the best PICK SIXES of the college football weekend, complete with a winner. Our weekly award is named after the Pick Six Legend himself - Deion "Primetime" Sanders.

- WEEK 7 -
There were 14 PICK SIXES in Division 1 Football this week, with two teams (Kentucky and UAB) housing two each. UNC's Jeff Schoettmer joins the season leaders with his 2nd PICK SIX this season. Another week and more Mississippi dominance, as both MS teams won again. While #HailState may have the nation's #1 spot for now, the Rebels will have to settle with their #3 spot and a Deion Sanders Award via Pick Six Previews:

We knew going into this weekend that it would be season-defining, but I don't think anyone could have imagined the level of chaos we saw unfold before our eyes. There were 6 matchups of ranked teams, including 3 SEC West games, and an all-time doubleheader in the State of Mississippi. We knew that group of games would be top-notch; but further than that we saw FIVE unranked teams upset ranked foes. When the dust finally settled, ELEVEN ranked teams fell, totally shifting the Top 25 rankings and playoff picture. One of the defining moments (there were several) came in Fort Worth as #25 TCU knocked off #4 Oklahoma:

There were a season-high 18 PICK SIXES in Division 1 this week, the most since Week 2, 2013 (22). Notable runner-ups: Anthony Walker (NW) who sealed the road win at Penn State, and Su'a Cravens, an All-American candidate making plays.
Ishmael Adams (UCLA) and Richard Leonard (FIU) became the only players with multiple PICK SIXES so far this season.
- WEEK 4 -
There were 12 Pick Sixes in Division 1 this weekend, the second highest total this season. Two teams housed two Pick Sixes: Duke and North Texas.
- WEEK 3 -
This week there were 9 PICK SIXES in Division 1 Football. Wake Forest and Utah State had consecutive PICK SIXES in their 1st quarter (36-24 Utah State win).
- WEEK 2 -
After just 7 Pick Sixes on opening weekend, there were 17 this week. Had Memphis held on for the upset over UCLA, Fritz Entienne would have taken home this week's Deion Award, but Hundley avoided that scenario. Similarly, had McNeese State held on for the upset over Nebraska, Aaron Sam's 98-yard PICK SIX could have made a push. Ameer Abdullah answered with yet another amazing play, helping Nebraska survive.
- WEEK 1 -
Usually on opening weekend, we see the highest number of PICK SIXES due to several factors including: more FCS opponents, more total games, young/new quarterbacks making their first start, etc. Last season there were a total of 13 and 23 PICK SIXES in Division 1 Football in Weeks 1 and 2, respectively. Week 1 2014 there were just 7, including two by the UCLA defense.
