Preliminaries: USC/Penn St./ND - May 4

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.

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

So far, we have seven players. Who'll be the final two? Friday show sees the Irish against the Nittany Lions against the Golden Bears...
