Boise State entered the tournament undefeated in the west division of the CRL regular season, a 15-0 record overall! In the national finals, the Broncos faced off against many teams from the league’s east division, such as West Virginia and Ball State. The only team Boise State lost to was Northwood University, who Boise State faced in the upper bracket final, and the grand final of the tournament.

By going undefeated in the regular season and finishing second in the finals, the Broncos took home a hefty share of the $65,000 prize pool offered over the season.  Thier great placement in the tournament also means gives them a great chance at qualifying for 2024 CRL Worlds. Not only does worlds give players a chance to compete internationally, but it offeres the biggest prize pool of all events with a $75,000 prize pool awarded to students last year.
