With March Madness officially underway, it's time to fill out your brackets in Newsday's bracket challenge.
Compete with other Newsday.com users for bragging rights by clicking over to newsday.com/bracket.
Of course, before you submit your bracket, make sure to research every team in the field of 68. Click here for links to each team's profile.
The challenge is run through bracketmaker.com, the same service Newsday uses for all of its brackets, so if you haven't yet registered with them, you'll be prompted to do so before submitting your bracket.
Additionally, you may notice that this year's four play-in games aren't included in the challenge. In the interest of keeping the bracket clean, we've eliminated these games from the challenge.
(NOTE: Newsday.com uses a third-party website, Bracketmaker.com, for all brackets. You will need to create an account to make your own NCAA bracket to compete with other Newsday readers. It's free, easy and we promise you will not be hit with spam.)
