Preliminaries: Stanford/Yale/Nebraska - May 1

Rivalries have been fought everywhere from the hardwood to the gridiron, but here at the University of Southern California, players from 15 prestigious colleges will take each other on in a rivalry of the academic kind.

But more than pride is on the line, as the winner of this two-week tournament will get a berth in the next Tournament of Champions as well as a check with a one followed by five zeroes. The first runner-up will pocket at least $50,000, while the second runner-up will take home a minimum of $25,000. Semifinalists are guaranteed $10,000, whilst there's a minimum of $5000 for participation. As always, any and all winning accrued depends on how far up the ladder a player goes.

(C-Note: for a while, we've been saying this was the second college championship this season... it's actually the first. Our apologies.)

In this first week, the five game-winners will meet up with four wild-card players among non-winning high scorers.

So far, Dean Malec of Northwestern is the only one assured of a seat in the semis. Joining him will be a Cardinal, a Bulldog, or a Husker.
