You can only participate in this challenge if you are a Pitt student with a valid Pitt email address. You will have to complete the entire brackets in two separate submissions.
The tournament is scored by giving 10 points for every correct pick in the first round for a possible total of 320 points that can be earned and doubled for each subsequent round.
320 points, 32*10, 32 teams advance
Points are also based on a team's ranking. Whatever team you pick to win, you will also get their ranking points. For higher points, it is best to pick lower ranking teams to upset higher ranking teams. However, the downside is if the team does not win, you do not get any points for that pick.
You have a possibility of scoring 1920 points + 800 bonus points depending on the rankings of each team that you picked that advanced. This will give a total of 2720 total points that could be attained in the tournament.
The grand prize is determined by the points you gained divided by 20. If you gained the highest possible points of 2720, you would leave with a grand prize of $136.00 if you are the winner.

It is best to open two browsers: one to do ATLANTA-WASHINGTON D.C Region and another to do OAKLAND-MINNEAPOLIS Region unless you want to backtrack after you get the cgiemail message for your records! Students have forgotten to do both brackets!
