Perfection isn’t required to win your ESPN Tournament Challenge group in either the women’s or men’s game, but if your bracket is busted because you picked Kentucky to make the men’s Final Four, or you had Ohio State’s women making deep run, ESPN Tournament Challenge Second Chance has you covered for the Sweet 16.

Perfect Bracket Status
Through the first weekend of tournament play, the ESPN Men’s Tournament Challenge has no perfect brackets remaining, but hope is alive on the women’s side.

  • Halfway through the women’s second round games, there are 14 perfect brackets remaining.
  • The quest for a perfect men’s bracket was over by Friday night, when James Madison beat Wisconsin in the South Region first round, eliminating the one perfect bracket remaining after 29 correct picks.

A Different Kind of “Perfection”
This year’s Men’s ESPN Tournament Challenge had one bracket go winless for 22 straight picks before finally getting one right Friday night when Colorado upset Florida in the first round of the South Region.

  • There are 16 winless brackets left in the Women’s ESPN Tournament Challenge, and since those 16 made incorrect picks through the first round with all teams they picked eliminated, they will remain winless throughout the remainder of the tournament.

Activated: Group Results Forecast
Powered by ESPN Analytics technology, the ESPN Tournament Challenge Group Results Forecast is available now for the men’s Sweet 16 and will be active for the Women’s Tournament Challenge when the Sweet 16 is set following tonight’s second round games.

  • For groups with up to 300 entries, Group Results Forecast allows fans to determine each of their brackets’ chances for winning their group and the potential results for every other bracket in their group that will clear a path to victory.
