Cereal Challenge Down to Sugar Filled 16


After 2 round of voting we are down to one sugar filled 16.  There were a lot of upsets in the West region, 5 to be exact.  The biggest upset might have been the 10 seed Reese’s Puffs who pulled out a close victory over the 7th seeded Kix.  As usual in a tournament such as this, you will get at least one 12 seed over a 5 seed and this year was no exception.  Peanut Butter Crunch came blazing out of the gates and dessimated the ill fated Alpha Bits without breaking a sweat.  Fruity Pebbles also made an impressive showing and I expect a lot of people to be jumping on the Fruity Pebbles bandwagon soon.  It feels like Fruity Pebbles could be the George Mason of this tournament but you never know what is going to happen.  Below are the results from the first round of the West Region as well as an updated bracket.  The new polls are up to the left of the page.  Vote early and vote often!  Monday afternoon we will tally the votes and present the final 8 cereals.
