Under the Radar

This Weekend's Biggest Sporting Event is 'Call of Duty'



Here's a fact: this weekend's #1 sporting event for the under-30 set isn't the NCAA basketball Elite Eight. The Call of Duty Championship is taking place in Los Angeles this weekend, with 32 teams competing for a $1 million prize pool. The winning squad takes home $400,000.

The teams are split into eight groups of four competing, with the top two from each group advancing to the double elimination round of 16. The weekend builds towards a championship match scheduled for 2pm PDT.

You can check out the brackets and a rough schedule here.
