Barrett threw for 2 TDs. Please Upvote winners.

In the "Black Stripe Game" thread a few people suggested that I carry the game in to the regular season. So, I think I'll give it a go. This will be similar to the the BSG, but each week, every Sunday, I will ask a question related to a storyline surrounding the team. The person who replies with the correct answer will receive upvotes from every participant. 

This weeks question: JT Barrett will be making his first career start on Saturday, how many TOTAL touchdowns will he have?

RULES

  • Respond to the question, if you are correct everyone who participated will give you up votes. 
  • Make your answer clear and visible. None of this. "I think Curtis Samuel will be the first to lose his stripe, but if I had to make a pick it would be Johnnie Dixon.
  • NO DOWNVOTES in this thread (unless it's a blatant troll)
  • No changing or editing your answer.
  • Picks will be accepted until kickoff. All answers after that DO NOT COUNT.

Just for fun, I'll say 3 passing TDs and 1 rushing TD. And since we're in the predicting mood, I go further and say Cardale gets 2 TDs - 1 passing and 1 rushing. And Bucks ROLL 56-13.

I think if you have the same choice as someone who has already posted, you should reply to that comment so you don't have to fish through the thread to upvote.

Edit: Just read the week 2 thread. Carry on.
