This is our last poster primary. Contestants in this round: Wake Forest, California, Stanford, Mississippi, Purdue and South Florida. Click here to view the candidates on one page.
We finished with 69 posters, easily smashing the previous record of 54, set last year. A 70th poster, entered by Boise State, was not allowed in the contest because it was an all-sports poster.
Voting for each primary will remain open until midnight (Pacific) on Wednesday. The 10 primary winners advance to the final and voting for the Wiz Readers' Choice Poster of the Year will begin Thursday and run for one week.
There are several close races as we enter the final days of primary voting. Let's break it down:
Primary No. 1: A remarkable turnaround this week. Iowa State, which trailed West Virginia 250 votes, now has a 1,249-vote lead.
Primary No. 2: Texas Tech has a lock on this primary and will advance to the final.
Primary No. 3: Michigan State has a 122-vote lead over North Carolina. North Carolina State and Missouri are third and fourth.
Primary No. 4: Louisiana Tech has extended its lead over Colorado by 1,602 votes. Florida State is a distant third, followed by the Florida.
Primary No. 5: Middle Tennessee is clinging to a 17-vote lead over Bowling Green. Washington, Wisconsin, Auburn and Kansas State continue to get blown out.
Primary No. 6: Penn State leads Iowa by 841 votes. Brigham Young is third and Houston is fourth.
Primary No. 7: Oklahoma has a 248-vote lead over Louisiana Lafayette. Still time for Tennessee, Minnesota, Texas El Paso and Syracuse to make a run.
Primary No. 8: Georgia Tech leads Louisiana State by 48 votes. Michigan was expected to be a factor but is a distant third.
Primary No. 9: USC leads by only 43 votes over Nebraska, but any of the other five teams — East Carolina, UCLA, Notre Dame, Washington State or Illinois — could make a run.
