It's all over, folks.

The veteran has fallen to the rookie.

In one last game for fantasy nerd supremacy, my Young Guns pulled off the 133-108 victory against Over the Hill in last week's championship game.

It was a tough season, but it made my team and me stronger. We overcame a tough losing streak to trump the overconfident Chris Low. He mocked me by not setting his lineup at times ... and still won. But it eventually caught up with him for a couple of weeks.

Last weekend, we had our lineups fully set and ready, but the Young Guns were just too strong.

Our leading scorer was Vanderbilt running back Zac Stacy (36), who ran for 184 yards and three touchdowns in that blowout win over Wake Forest. Aaron Murray's four-touchdown day against Georgia Tech helped his 28-point day and LSU's defensive performance against Arkansas was good enough for 20 points.

Chris' leading scorers were South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw (36), Alabama running back Trent Richardson (26) and Alabama's defense (15). Richardson might have etched his name onto the Heisman Trophy with his 203-yard rushing performance against Auburn, but it just wasn't enough to push Chris' team over the top.

When we actually gave our rosters our full attention, we had a lot of fun with our fantasy teams. It got pretty exciting there at the end and it helped me take my mind off of my awful NFL fantasy team, which is currently winless and hasn't been updated since Week 5.

It also gives me the added confidence I need going to the bowl season as we continue our SEC game predictions. The Kid has some life!
