The college sports season is well underway and that means that the college esports seasons are also going strong. With the end of October fast approaching, it's time for some games to look ahead to how they'll determine their championships and, on Monday, Psyonix and Tespa issued new details on Rocket League's college championship event.

The Collegiate Rocket League (CRL) National Championship will take place on December 8, as the top four teams in North America battle it out for supremacy from the Esports Stadium in Arlington, TX. There will be $25,000 in scholarships at stake in what's being billed as the first live collegiate Rocket League event, with spectator activities available throughout the day. The semifinals and finals will all unfold over the course of a single day, with the top four competing in a double elimination bracket.

Over 250 schools have jumped into this second season of Collegiate Rocket League. Three weeks of Conference Play remain, with 400 teams being whittled down to just four. For more details on the CRL National Championship event, be sure to visit the Rocket League Esports website. And for more on Tespa, be sure to revisit our interview from earlier this year.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
