From CBS To Fathead, Here Are 5 Easy Ways To Track Your 2016 NCAA March Madness Bracket

The NCAA tournament is set to kick off on Thursday afternoon. As the excitement heats up, millions of people are readying their perfect March Madness bracket.

In 2016, there are multiple ways you can track how your teams are doing.

Fat Bracket

The newest way to track your bracket is brought to you by Fathead. Eyes getting sore from looking at your paper printouts? Now you can buy a #FatBracket to track every round's winners without having to squint at your picks.

CBS Sports

CBS Corporation (NYSE: CBS) has long been the host network for the NCAA tournament. What better way to check your phone than with its official app?

The "My Brackets" section allows you to seamlessly track every bracket you fill out, such as your office pool or competition between friends. CBS also sends you a push notification for each game chosen, so you can find out in real-time how your bracket is performing.

Other Apps

There are also, of course, a number of other apps that can track your performance. Walt Disney Co (NYSE: DIS)'s ESPN is one of the most popular, along with Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ: YHOO)'s Yahoo Sports.

The app store also has several individualized bracket apps that aren't necessarily tied to any specific network.

Newspaper Cutout

It might be a little old school, but many newspapers around the country allow you to cut out a bracket and fill it in as you go along. Thousands of people surely have taped newspaper cutouts to their bedroom doors, watching the color fade as the month goes by.

Printed Brackets

As newspaper popularity has waned, the Internet has given way to easier access to print dozens and dozens of brackets. Just try not to get too crazy and run your printer out of ink.
