PBR Texas UIL State Playoffs Bracket Challenge Announced

PBR Texas Staff

We're extremely excited to announce the first-ever PBR Texas Bracket Challenge for the upcoming 1A- 6A Playoffs. This is a March Madness style bracket challenge that allows each person to make their own picks and predictions for every matchup in the 1A-6A Playoffs. We're excited to be able to bring this to baseball fans throughout Texas, giving them a chance to show how much they know about high school baseball in the Lone Star State. 

Below are the Format and Rules for the Bracket Challenge.


These rules and the format of this challenge should be fairly straight-forward and easy to understand, especially for someone who has participated in ESPN's Tourney Challenge for March Madness. This should be fairly similar in terms of how you can win, standings and much more. We've created seven separate brackets (six different classifications) on www.challonge.com that are open and joinable for anyone to participate. This challenge is completely FREE to play and there will be no money involved for entry or for the prize-winners.

  • All Class 1A-6A brackets must be submitted by 3:00 PM, Thursday the 5th.

  • All picks must be made for your bracket prior to the deadline, including selecting a winner from each matchup and ultimately the champion for that specific classification.

Each winner will receive PBR Texas merchandise. 


The bigger the matchup, the bigger the reward for correctly picking the winner. Below is an explanation for how many points will be rewarded for correctly picking the winner for a matchup in different rounds of the playoffs. This point system will be the same for all classifications.
