Prequarters Friday

After yesterday’s results, Chain draws Truck Stop at 1145 Am (CST) today in the prequarters. This round of 16 initiates the elimination bracket, a change this year from what had long been the traditional “power pools” format. In other words, teams are now in the “Survive and Advance” / “Win or Go Home” part of the tournament. A win versus Truck Stop would earn ATL a quarters match-up with the Ironside/Madcow victor.
