Darius Rucker has helped launch Pigskin Fantasy U (PFU), which brings a fun new twist to college fantasy sports. The league allows participants to draft entire teams to create their roster.
The concept is very simple, making it fun for college football fans of all levels. During an online, real-time draft, participants select teams to make-up their roster for the season. Each week, the participant selects teams to either start or bench. Points are given when a starting team wins.
“I can’t wait for football season to start,” said PFU Celebrity Commissioner Rucker. Rucker, a University of South Carolina graduate and avid Gamecocks fan continued, “Watching games on Saturday is one of my favorite things to do and adding Pigskin Fantasy U to the mix is going to be awesome. My buddies and I needed another reason to talk about football and trash talk each other.”
PFU resides at www.PigskinFantasyU.com, where you can start or join a league for free through Oct. 31, long after the season starts. When you start your own league, you set your own rules regarding the number of teams each person drafts, whether you play a head-to-head or one-vs.-all format, as well as many other options. The live, online draft feature lets friends and foes alike join together from far away places.
