Santander “Yard Wars”: May the football scores be with you

090415 SC Santander Yard Wars May the football scores be with you_VERTICAL

Long ago, in a galaxy far away …

OK, well, maybe not that long ago or far away, Santander Consumer USA ran a Pro Football Pool for its auto dealers that has been as popular as a Wookie on a spaceship.

Now, we’re launching a similar contest so that you and the whole galaxy can get in on the fun.

The first-ever Santander Pro Football Pool, “Yard Wars,” FOR CONSUMERS ONLY, begins a 17-week saga of yardage battles starting Thursday, Sept. 10, with the Pittsburgh Steelers playing the defending champion New England Patriots, and continuing with all the games of opening weekend.

To make sure things are as exciting as a dash through an asteroid field with Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon, there will be weekly winners and prizes, plus an overall contest winner.

We would be honored if you would join us, and may the scores be with you.

  • Make your weekly pick (see “How the Pool Works” below), with the ability to change them right up until your pool’s deadline.

How The Pool Works:

  • Picks are made “straight up,” not using a point-spread system.
  • Each pool member picks every NFL game for the week.
  • In addition to picking the winning team, members must rank how confident they are that the team they picked will win. The more points assigned to a pick, the more confident they are that team will win.
  • For each correct pick, they receive the number of points they assigned to that pick.
  • Standings are calculated for the week and for the year-to-date.
  • We’ll also be tweeting throughout the season, so be sure and follow us on Twitter ( to keep up with the latest information
  • Like us on Facebook, where we will announce the winner(s) for each week on our Facebook page ( Upon receiving your prize, winners are encouraged to submit a photo of you for us to post on Facebook.

A brief reminder: You must get your picks in by the weekly deadline — before the first game each Thursday. You can modify the remainder of the games up until the Thursday deadline. All picks will be hidden until the first kickoff on Thursday. If you have any questions, please Read the FAQ and check out the Message Board. If you still have questions, feel free to post it on the public message board. You can always ask your administrator
