FINAL: Uber Driver Advances to Final Four in Low Scoring Struggle With Earnings by College Major; Final Score: 45-26


Update at 2pm Wednesday: Uber Driver Leads Earnings by College Major 36-22



Two teams have punched their ticket to Friday’s NGPF FINAL FOUR matchups. Who will join them in the semifinal round, and a case to be made for NGPF’s 2018 Resource of the Year? Players will play. Ballers will ball. Time will tell.

Today’s Tilt:

This is a clash of new dynamo vs. grizzled veteran. Introducing Wednesday War Zone.

Uber Driver comes in hotter than a Prius with a broken air conditioner. In a statement win over what many pundits thought was this tournament’s darkhorse contender, 5 Stocks On Your Birthday, Uber Driver showed it was in the tournament to stay.

This was an impressive win over a classroom favorite, sure, but can the innovative new Uber Driver stave off a defeat from stalwart traditionalist Earnings by Major? Does it have the depth to go the distance? Or is this whole gig economy thing all flash and no substance?

Earnings by Major boasts major clout in this tournament, pun absolutely intended. With students analyzing each popular major by the average payday each major’s grads earn, this resource builds exactly the kind of critical thinking skills and court vision students need in order to navigate a competitive post-college world - before they get there. And don’t forget, who did Earnings by Major pick off to get to the Elite 8? That’s right - another flashy hyper-modern resource, Online Tools & Apps.


Financial Times, creator of the Uber game, is happy to see their game battling for supremacy in the NGPF Elite 8:
