NCAA Frozen Four Bracket Contest

A Capwise tradition from the beginning — the Golden Bracket contest returns.  Fill out your bracket for the NCAA men’s hockey tournament, and cheer on your favorite college team to the Frozen Four title!

How it Works

The bracket will be distributed as soon as the NCAA releases its final seeding.  Fill out the bracket for the 16-team tournament, and then cheer on your pick.  Also take a guess at the final score of the championship game.


Get 1 point for each correct first round pick, 2 points in the second round, 4 points in the third round, and 8 points for correctly picking the winner.  Correctly guess the final score of the championship game?  Take 2 bonus points.
