As Boise State’s League of Legends squad continues to push for their first-ever invitation to the cLoL live finals in Los Angeles, the picture becomes more clear. After winning two of their three games on the opening weekend of the 16-team play-in turn meant, the Broncos have identified 5 wins as the next step in what needs to be done in order to earn that invitation.
- 16 teams compete
- 2 groups of 8 teams each
- Single Round Robin
- All matches are best of one
- Top 2 in each group qualify for the 2019 College Championship
With Columbia College being identified as the top team in the bracket, the Broncos are battling it out with the Michigan State squad for the second position in the tournament qualifier. Boise State defeated South Carolina and Depaul University but dropped the head-to-head match against MSU. Saturday, April 13, the Broncos take on their final four opponents including Drew University, Columbia College, North Carolina State, and NYIT. The Broncos will need to win all 4 games to guarantee a spot without help. However, Boise State will be hoping for an NC State upset over Michigan State and to win at least three games on the day. Winning 5 of the 7 games might just be enough for a ticket to LA.
Tune in and watch the Broncos Saturday, April 13 starting at 2 PM live at the Esports arena on 301 South Capitol Blvd. or on twitch.tv/BoiseStateUniversity
