2014 TVNewser Bracket Challenge: ‘Elite 8′

NCAA march madnessWe’re down to the “Elite 8,” as the “Sweet 16″ concluded last night with Michigan St. squeaking out a victory against Virginia and Kentucky beating Louisville.

Dayton continued its upset streak the day before, this time beating Stanford.

TVNewser’s bracket challenge is also in full swing with the TV news industry’s biggest on-air and behind-the-scenes names. Unlike last round, the standings are beginning to separate after the current first and second place leaders, CNN meteorologist Chad Myers and Fox News copy editor Martin Hill.

“I feel like the smartest guy in the room…but the weather office is a very small room,” Myers tells TVNewser about his current place atop the leaderboard.

Take a look at the full standings, after the jump.
