We have reached the best part of the season.. It’s Playoff time gentlemen!  We have elected to reduce the Regular Season by a week and instead do a Double Elimination Tournament for the Playoffs that will give everyone the opportunity to take the field a couple more times and add some drama to the Playoffs – a Win/Win!  We are going to break down all of the match-ups for Week 1 of the Playoffs in the Preview below!

Here’s the Link to the Weekly Highlight Video! 

One more thing before we get to the Power Rankings… StudentCity believes that international travel is one of the most important experiences that can transform all of our lives for the better.

Playoff Preview

3. Team Apuli (StudentCity) v. 6. Team Massel (Schweitzer Title) — Winner plays 2. Team Holway (Biaggi’s)

Team Apuli, Team Holway and Team Guggenheim all tied atop the Standings after Week 5 with a record of 4-1.. All of those 3 Teams went 1-1 against the others. Due to Margin of Victory in those Games, Team Guggenheim took the 1 seed, Team Holway finished 2nd and that left Team Apuli as the 3 seed — on the outside looking in on an initial Bye.. They will now take on 6. Team Massel to start the Playoffs with the Winner moving on to face 2. Team Holway.. It could set up a big-time rematch from Team Apuli and Team Holway who battled just this past Tuesday Night in an OT Game that Team Apuli took 20-19. These Two Teams know each other well at this point and if we get that match-up it’ll likely be the Game of the Night.. Of course, standing in the way of that Rematch is Team Massel who is still searching for their first Win of the Season but has been extremely close multiple times and seem like they are on the verge of breaking through.. They have enough to pull a stunner on Tuesday Night and throw a wrench into the Playoff Bracket early on.. This will be exciting!

 

 

4. Team Jiminez (cea Study Abroad) v. 5. Team Roberson (Dr. Jacob D.D.S.) — Winner plays 1. Team Guggenheim (Chipotle)

Teams Roberson and Jiminez will battle it out in their initial Playoff Game. Team Roberson will be entering their first Playoff Game as a unit while Team Jiminez will enter the Playoffs as the Defending Champs.. Two very different experience levels here.. Team Jiminez is also bringing in a 2-Game Winning Streak here and seem to be clicking at the right time yet again. Both Teams have enough to Win however. The reward for winning that Game will be a date with #1 overall seed Team Guggenheim immediately following.. Team Guggenheim has been at or near the top of the Standings all season long and earned the #1 seed.. That will all be for not though if they cannot get past either Team Jiminez or Team Roberson to start the Playoffs.  The Losers of those Two Games will head to Elimination Game Territory while the Survivor of this pod will move to within just a couple Wins away from the Crown!

 

That’s it for this week, see everyone for the Playoffs on Tuesday Night!
