RULES: Rules are easy. Pick two teams that you think will go unbeaten during the first full week of action (Friday Nov. 11 – Sunday Nov. 20). You cannot choose teams that you have already chosen in previous weeks, and it is your responsibility to know which teams you’ve already used. Your pool of available teams are the 75 schools from the ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC. Note that the Big East option is new this year — 10 more teams.

WEEK ONE FORM: LOCATED HERE.

HOW IT WORKS:

  • If both your teams go unbeaten, you advance to next week (note: both teams MUST play at least one game).
  • If your teams split (one goes unbeaten; one loses), you use a strike and advance to next week.
  • If both your teams lose a game (or more than one game), you are eliminated.

ELIMINATIONS: If you attempt to use the same team twice in a season, or you choose a team that doesn’t play that week, or you miss a weekly deadline, you are eliminated. The game will go for as long as there are survivors standing, but we may reserve the right to go to daily lightning rounds during the NCAA Tournament if necessary.

STRIKES: You’re allowed two strikes during the season. A THIRD strike eliminates you. Note this rule is new as well.

DEADLINE: One entry per person, please. Deadline for Week One is 6 PM ET Friday 11/11. No exceptions!

PRIZES: The last #cbbsurvivor standing will win two tickets to the 2017 NCAA Tournament regional of his choice. Second through fifth place will receive RTC t-shirts. Good luck!
