Louisville did not appear at registration. Slam Nahuatl, the first team on the wait list, was moved into Louisville's spot.
Bout 16: The MC initially assessed a 2 point prop penalty against Slam Nuba for Mahogany's poem. After clarification of the prop rule, the penalty was withdrawn. These changes do not affect the rankings in the bout.
