Season Zero Recap

Georgia Southern Regular Season Dominance

Georgia Southern University took the collegiate Call of Duty scene by storm and never looked back. The regular season domination left Georgia Southern as the sole undefeated team heading into the playoffs. With the number one seed, it was expected that they would sweep their way into the title.

CCL Green 3 – 0 Georgia Southern University

In an unexpected turn of events, CCL Green swept the favorites in the winner’s bracket final. GSU player Apoc was unable to make the match which meant that the Eagles played a man down. After a frustrating loss, the team regrouped and prepared for a loser’s bracket run.

Georgia Southern Switches Gears and wins Season Zero

After their loss in the winner’s finals, Georgia Southern got their fourth and began their loser’s bracket run. First up was the hot CCL Red and their star player Physix. In a match to remember, Georgia Southern managed to take the win with a sweep on CCL Red. A rematch against CCL Green and two best-of-threes stood in their way from the title.

The momentum carried with GSU as they defeated CCL Green 3-1 in match one and 3-0 in match two. The Eagles won Season Zero dominating the regular season and grinding the playoffs. They will look to do better in the upcoming season.
