FAQs

When can I make my picks?

Your bracket will be available to complete after Selection Sunday, March 14, when the NCAA announces which teams will be participating in the tournament, and will be open for picks until Friday, March 19, five minutes before the first game begins that day. No one may submit a bracket after that deadline.

Can I change my picks?

You can update your bracket up until 5 minutes before the first game of the tournament begins. At that time, brackets will lock and cannot be updated again.

Are the play-in games included in this contest?

There are four preliminary games on March 18 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.
