UC San Diego and UC Irvine — the titans of collegiate gaming — clash on Friday – The San Diego Union-Tribune

UC San Diego and UC Irvine — who have the two best teams in collegiate computer gaming — will compete on Friday night when they square off in the game Overwatch.

The competition will begin at 8 p.m. and will be streamed live at Twitch.tv/uciesports.

UCI will project the game on a big screen at its eSports arena, a former pool hall that’s become one of the most popular hangouts on campus.

Gaming is emerging as a major sport that often draws more viewers online than some colleges draw for in-person sporting events, like football.
