Boise State Valorant closed out October with a major win on the road at the Red Bull Campus Clutch USA Rockies Offline Qualifier. The event, held in Denver, Colorado, pitted Boise State against the top three teams in the tournament’s Rockies division. Boise State ultimately won the regional finals to qualify for the tournament’s national finals in Arlington, Texas.
As previously reported, the RBCC is an international tournament featuring thousands of universities from across the globe.
Universities from North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia will all compete in separate tournaments for their continent. The global grand finals are later this year in Brazil. A prize of €20,000 awaits the world champions. In the Rockies division finals, Boise State beat Wyoming, New Mexico, and Colorado, Boulder to claim the division title.
Boise State’s Valorant head coach, Alex More traveled with the Broncos to Denver and shared the teams experience.
“Going into the tournament we were feeling really good about our chances,” said Coach Moore. “We were also able to get to know the other teams really well. We were incredibly thankful to New Mexico and Wyoming for cheering us on in the grand finals! After the games we were able to get dinner with them and make some lasting friendships!”
With the fun of the Denver tournament behind them, the Broncos are now preparing to compete at the national finals which will take place on November 19th in Arlington, Texas. The Broncos will face up against the top collegiate teams the USA has to offer.
“Going into nationals we feel like that we have a real chance to go the distance,” predicted Coach Moore. “There are some other great teams participating so it will be a tough task including last events winner San Jose State. We are taking the time to look at all of our opponents and make sure that we come in to give our selves the best chance possible to have a good run.”
