NCAA Tournament brackets now open for postseason bracket challenge

The field is set for the NCAA Tournament and now its time to fill out a bracket for a chance to win an official NCAA Tournament volleyball from Molten USA.

The annual Off the Block NCAA Men’s Volleyball Postseason Bracket Challenge gives fans the opportunity to predict who will win matches in the four-team NCAA Tournament, along with the three conference tournaments.


The EIVA, MIVA and MPSF conference tournaments concluded last weekend and the NCAA Tournament begins Thursday with both semifinal matches. The No. 2 seed UC Irvine will play the No. 3 seed Loyola in the first semifinal and the No. 1 seed BYU will play the No. 4 seed Penn State in the other semifinal.

Bracket challenge participants can fill out their bracket online at challonge.com or at the bottom of this post. Before filling out a bracket, individuals will be asked to create an account on Challonge. Creating an account on Challonge is free and takes less than a minute to complete.

Thee individual who has the highest combined score on all four brackets — MPSF Tournament, MIVA Tournament, EIVA Tournament and NCAA Tournament — will receive a NCAA V5M5000-3N game ball from Molten USA.

In the event of a tie for first place at the end of the bracket challenge, one contestant from the first-place brackets will be randomly selected for the grand prize. The winner will also be notified via their Challonge account.

This contest is organized by Off the Block and was created independently of the EIVA, MIVA, MPSF and NCAA.

Brackets for the Off the Block NCAA Men’s Volleyball Postseason Bracket Challenge can be submitted up until the start of the first match in each tournament.
