Who do you think will make the Final? Who will raise the Cup? I know for a fact not many picked one of these four.

In our Bracket Challenge, the top 5 are:

  1. Bowtie Stats, 112 points (112 max score)
  2. Team america, 103 (153 max)
  3. tom, 96 (146 max)
  4. (tie) Pale Dragon, 94 (144 max) and MrSwift, 94 (144 max)

But keep an eye on the 2 entries who still have a Cup winner alive:

9. Dalerrific, 83 points (233 max), who picked Carolina
13. FFMorgan89, 65 points (215 max), who picked Vegas
