The third round of voting was close, and some major players were eliminated. Let’s take a look at the scores.
Engineering icon MIT was put away by the University of Wisconsin, one of the winners in the last two Bracket Challenges (53% to 47%). Another one of those winners, Purdue University, knocked out the University of Michigan (55% to 45%).
Yet another engineering icon—and one of the few with a semi-well-known fight song (listen to it here)—Georgia Tech, won in a squeaker over Stanford University (52% to 48%). And Virginia Tech got to the quarter finals by overcoming the University of Illinois (53% to 47%).
Courtney W. had the good luck to win an Apple iPad Pro just for voting.
So the quarterfinals will feature Georgia Tech vs. Virginia Tech, a battle of the Techs, and Purdue versus the University of Wisconsin, a University showdown between the two schools that won the last two bracket challenges.
