If the losing wrestler in the championship bracket pigtail match wins his wrestleback match, he will earn an additional .5 advancement points due to a bye. This bye is not shown on the NCAA brackets due to space constraints.
Tie Breaker Scenario: If at the end of the tournament, two or more teams end up in a tie, 1st place will be awarded to the team with the most individual champions. If no team is awarded then we will go to individual All-Americans, then we will go with the team that used the lowest salary cap, if a champion is not crowned we will have a potato sack race on consecutive Sundays until a champion is crowned
