Compete In March Madness Pools With Allen Robinson, Keegan-Michael Key, And Us

Yesterday was Selection Sunday, which means today is Make Way Too Many Brackets Monday. In the spirit of the non-holiday, here are some Penn State-themed leagues to get involved in through ESPN’s Tournament Challenge.

The competing Nittany Lion with the highest profile might be Allen Robinson, the standout wide receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars who was just named to the Pro Bowl in his second NFL season. Here‘s where you can sign up and compete against his bracket, in addition to hundreds of other fans.

Next is the Key & Peele group, 50 percent of which is Penn State alumnus and 2015 Homecoming Grand Marshal Keegan-Michael Key. The bracket pool was partially made to promote the comedy duo’s upcoming movie, “Keanu.” Here‘s where you can join.

Penn State basketball’s faithful student section Legion Of Blue created a free bracket challenge of its own and is hinting at prizes included on twitter. Legion Of Blue has already joined Onward State’s league, so you have two chances to beat the Penn State superfans for bracketology bragging rights. Join LOB’s league here.

The last two groups aren’t focused on a single figure, but they’re still Penn State-themed. First is the “Fans of Penn State” group, where everyone is competing based on the common rooting interest of a team that isn’t playing in any postseason tournament (here‘s where you can sign up).

Last is the Onward State league! We made an open Tournament Challenge league on ESPN for you, the folks, to compete against our staff. We have everything from spoiled Michigan State fans to haunted Syracuse fans, but we all fill out our brackets with the same general strategy: other than Michigan losing in the first round, we don’t really know what we’re doing. If you want to go head-to-head with our staff, fill out a bracket and join our league here.

All of the brackets are free and only require an ESPN username and password to join (you only need a valid email address to sign up). There aren’t any prizes other than being able to say you’re better at filling out a bracket than Allen Robinson, Keegan-Michael Key, hundreds or thousands of other Penn State fans, and by default, me. Head over to ESPN this week and get ready to earn some bragging rights.
