Print March Madness NCAA Brackets for the Tournament

Print out your NCAA Tournament March Madness Bracket

Even in today’s technological age, there’s nothing quite like having your March Madness bracket printed out on paper. That’s why, each march, the big sports sites like ESPN, CBS Sports, Yahoo and still produce printable versions of the NCAA Tournament bracket.

Every big sports website will have their own free, printable tournament bracket, whether blank or filled-out brackets with all the seedings. Most will allow you the ability to print the bracket out on an 8 x 11 piece of paper so you can fill out your choices with a pen (not a pencil).

if you are into guessing how the bracketology will work out, while others will provide a fair amount of functionality to enter and save your picks once the pairings are released. The following is a listing of some of the better-known printable brackets available to use for this year’s tournament.

When are seeds determined for the NCAA Tournament Bracket?

The initial bracketology is all set. Yesterday was CBS Selection Sunday and the NCAA Selection Committee chose the 68 teams including Arizona, Wichita State, Virginia and Florida as the tournament’s four #1 seeds. Not much of a surprise considering the strength of Arizona and Virginia throughout the season, Florida’s toughness, and the surprising Wichita State Shockers phenomenal season.

Michigan was favored to be one of the top seeds, but after barely squeezing by Illinois and Ohio State, then losing to state rival Michigan State, they had to settle for the #3 seed. Discuss the NCAA Tournament in our college basketball forum

Your Printable NCAA Tournament Brackets

Here’s a listing of printable brackets provided by some of the biggest names in American sports. It’s all subjective, I picked out ESPN, Sports Illustrated, CBS Sports, NCAA, The Sporting News and Yahoo. I located their brackets and linked them throughout this post as a resource for NCAA fans who want to print a tournament bracket for free.

Sports Illustrated

Sports Illustrated is part of the Turner Sports Network. It’s off that they don’t have an actual landing page for their bracket as other major websites do. At least I couldn’t locate it. However, they have a PDF of their printable bracket. Click the tournament bracket below to print out the PDF.

Every year, ESPN also runs their ESPN’s Tournament Challenge which pits you against other bracket pickers. If you have the best bracket, you have the chance to win a $10,000 Best Buy gift card. Tournament Bracket

When available, get the information directly from the horse’s mouth. IN this case, get your bracket from the source when it comes to March Madness. For the tournament, the N.C.A.A. always has a version of the printable bracket in PDF format, as one would expect.

It’s free in the sense that it won’t cost you a thing to download and print it, but it does come with  tournament sponsor’s logo on each bracket. Maybe after you finish your bracket, you’ll want to buy a Buick or watch TruTV!

Yahoo Sports

Yahoo is known for their fantasy sports, so it’s also popular for college basketball. Of course, Yahoo Sports will also have their online NCAA Basketball Brackets. Yahoo made a huge splash when they announced The Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge that would award $1 billion dollars to anyone that selected the perfect tourney bracket — that’s if you can get registered before the exclusive 15 million entries they’re accepting. Good luck.

CBS Sports

It’s natural that college basketball fans will print out the tournament bracket from the network who runs Selection Sunday and is responsible for covering March Madness. That network is CBS and CBS Sports provides their printable bracket. CBS Sports also offers a free bracket manager for you to follow your own bracket challenge for the NCAA Tournament. Click the CBS’ bracket image to download and print out the PDF.

The Sporting News

The Sporting News is increasingly becoming less of an influence, but the sports news magazine and website also put out their own March Madness brackets to keep up with the other big boys.
