Semifinals: UCLA/GA Tech/Nebraska - May 7

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.

We started with 15... now we're down to nine. From there, we cut further to three. Three games and three winners means it's a "win or go home" affair. First up, three wild cards from last week...
