Here we go! The Droid Life Bracket Challenge 2015 is now live and read for your entry. This year (which is our 6th year of doing this contest, if you can believe that), we are giving away a Nexus 9 32GB ($479 value) and $100 in Google Play gift cards to the winner.
For those new, each year for the past six years we have put together a massive NCAA men’s basketball tournament bracket challenge through ESPN’s Tourney Challenge service. It works just like your office bracket pool, except this one is free and is massive. Last year, we had almost 4,000 entries and gave away a Nexus 5 plus $100 in Google Play gift cards. It’s loads of fun, even if you aren’t a college basketball fan. In fact, this is easily my favorite sports period of the entire year because everyone can get involved, talk about upsets, and brag about their perfect brackets.
In order to play, you don’t need to know a thing about college basketball. All you need to do is fill out a bracket through ESPN, which you can do based on the color of each team, who has the cuter point guard, which mascot would win in a battle to the death, or maybe, should you actually watch college basketball, based on which team you think might actually win. You could even just pick Kentucky to win everything, and then fill in the rest with randoms and you might end up doing pretty well. I really don’t care. Just pick and submit.
