|Round||Points per Game|
When will my bracket be available and where can I find it?
Your bracket will be available to complete after Selection Sunday when the NCAA announces which teams will be participating in the tournament, and will be open for picks until five minutes before the first game of the tournament. No one may submit a bracket after that deadline.
How can I edit my picks?
You can update your bracket up until five minutes before the first game of the tournament begins (the four preliminary games are not included). At that time, brackets will lock and cannot be updated again. To edit your picks, return to your bracket and make the changes you'd like. Once complete, select the "Submit" button.
How can print my bracket?
If you'd like to print your bracket, simply click the printer icon from your bracket page.
Are the play-in games included in this contest?
There are four preliminary games to determine who will play in four of the first round of the bracket games. There are no points associated with these "First Four" games in the Pick-It March Mania contest. You’ll see there are two teams listed on a few of the bracket spots, but those will be replaced with the winner of the play-in game after that game finishes. Your picks can be edited during these games and will lock five minutes before the start of the first tournament game outside of these four play-ins.
How do I claim a prize if I win?
If you placed in your contest, congratulations! The company hosting your contest will reach out to you with more information about collecting your prize. If you do not hear from them within a week, we recommend you call that company directly to discuss prize pick up.

Why do I have to trigger a login email?
What do the colors on the bracket indicate?
Once games conclude, the bracket will change colors indicating whether you have made a correct pick or not.
Green means your pick was correct
Red means your pick was incorrect
Gray shows which team you predict will win that match up
