Telescope teamed up with Turner NCAA in connection with the annual NCAA March Madness Tournament, to power a bracket-style online vote for “Clash of the Underdogs”.  Our online voting application matched up teams from past tournament years that defied the odds in games where they were considered underdogs.

For the application, we integrated with Turner’s video player so that fans could watch a short highlight video of the team before casting their vote.
