In the second battle of regional champions, Mizzou Quiddich (2-0) overtook the Boise State Abraxans (1-1) 170*-80. Both teams look very likely to secure bracket spots with Mizzou atop its pool with a 180 adjusted point differential and Boise in third with at least one winnable game ahead of it. Oklahoma State University (2-0) secured a close victory over Lake Erie Elite (0-2) 200*-160 and likely a bracket spot. Lake Erie Elite at 0-2 still has a chance to advance to bracket play with games remaining against Pod 4 Long Beach Funky Quaffles and Pod 5 Marquette University Quidditch.
Arizona State University (ASU) (1-1) bounced back from its first loss of the season to steadily defeat the Macaulay Honors College Marauders (0-2) 110*-10. Macaulay is likely eliminated as it has lost twice and is yet to face Lone Star Quidditch Club who is currently topping the pool. ASU is very likely to advance as it will need to defeat either University of Miami Quidditch or the Richmond Ravens, both games in which it will be favored. Texas Quidditch (2-0) continues to show dominance over its pool’s lower pod teams with a 150*-20 win over the RIT Dark Marks (0-2). The true test for Texas will come in its final two games against University of California Los Angeles at 3:40 p.m. and Ball State Cardinals at 6:20 p.m., both on Pitch 1. Texas has virtually clinched its spot in the bracket, while RIT is very probably eliminated. Texas A&M University Quidditch (2-0), the Los Angeles Gambits (2-0), Bowling Green State University (2-0), and District of Columbia Quidditch Club all maintained their undefeated records with wins over Anteater Quidditch (0-2) 130-60*, the Penn State Nittany Lions (1-1) 180*-50, Virginia Quidditch Club (1-1) 130*-50, and inTENNsity (0-2) 150*-30 respectively. Each 2-0 team is likely to advance to bracket play.
