About this app

The #1 bracket app is back and better than ever for the 2023 NCAA Men’s and Women’s College Basketball tournaments! Compete against friends, ESPN personalities and celebrities to see who finishes with the best bracket. The best part is it’s completely free to play and we’re offering $150K in total prizes this year!

- Create up to 25 brackets and enter each bracket in up to 10 different groups to play against friends, celebrities, ESPN personalities, and fans across the nation.
- Fill out your Women’s Tournament Challenge brackets directly in the app! Create up to 25 different brackets for the women’s tourney and use Bracket Predictor and Bracket Analyzer to help you make the most informed picks.
- Finish your bracket in seconds by auto-filling with top seeds, a Smart Bracket powered by ESPN’s Basketball Power Index, or completely random selections. Unsure about a game or two? You can also import a bracket that you’ve already filled out on the app, make some tweaks and submit it again to increase your chances of winning!
- Only want to pick your champion? No problem. Let ESPN take care of the rest by clicking ‘Finish My Bracket For Me’ with either Smart Bracket powered by BPI or with random selections.
- View details on each matchup to make informed picks, including season and historical performance information for each team and video previews for each game of the tournament.

Not the greatest layout for going back between Picks. I thought it make more sense to be able to see the entire bracket at once. Or just make where you can see full screen and then tap on a game to pick and then back out to see the whole bracket again. Hopefully that makes sense and App has never worked since downloading and has some kind of error when you click on Play TC second chance. So, really never got to enter the second chance bracket challenge. Thanks

I don't know what I would do without this app. It's a great thing to have at tournament time. But it has its issues. First of all, The Second Chance Bracket Challenge appears to be broken. It won't even connect to the server, even after... 1.) Uninstalling and reinstalling the app, 2.) Restarting my phone, and 3.) Clearing the app's cache. And the app seems to trigger a "No Internet Connection" message at the bottom of my phone, even when I have an excellent connection. PLEASE FIX THESE ISSUES.

Buggy and non-intuitive layout. Couldn't view picks for games that hadn't occurred yet. Partially useless for keeping up with your bracket, it's 1 job. The worst part is the notifications. 2 settings, men's and women's tournament. Can't turn off the women's notifications. It's an app to send a notification every couple hours to watch ESPN.
