Official Rules for BUnow.com March Madness Bracket Challenge



About the Promotion:  The BUnow.com March Madness Bracket Challenge is a free contest for Bloomsburg Students based around the 2019 NCAA Men’s Division I College Basketball Tournament.  Students are invited to create a free tournament bracket in which they will select the winners of 63 games.  Every participant who accepts the official rules and submits a bracket will have the opportunity to win a $100 prize.  The prize and winner are subject to the Tie-Breaking rules listed below.

Eligibility:  To participate in the bracket challenge you must be at least 18 years of age or older, and be a current student at Bloomsburg University. BU students must submit their brackets using the BUnow group on ESPN. Only two brackets per participant will be allowed.

How to Enter:  To enter the bracket challenge you must opt-in while creating your tournament bracket. Brackets can be submitted anytime between the launch of the bracket up until 12 pm ET on Mar. 19.

Conduct:  Failure to comply with any of the official rules can result in your disqualification from the bracket challenge. Vulgar bracket names will not be accepted. Participants must be respectful and vulgar language will not be tolerated.

Prize:  The participant who submits the best bracket based upon the scoring as identified on the ESPN website will be the winner of a $100 prize.

Tie-Breaking Rules:  If more than one verified participant has a bracket with the same amount of points (using the official scoring system) the winner will be selected by using a random drawing of all of the winners; two will be selected to win $50 Visa Gift Cards.

BUnow, basketball, and money!? Name a better trio, we’ll wait.

BUnow will have a table in the BU Rec Center on Wed., Mar. 6 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with  promotional items and a flyer featuring the QR code to our ESPN March Madness Group. May the best bracket win!
