What Is a Bye in Sports?

Answer

A 'bye' in sports is when a team is allowed to advance to the next round of a tournament without playing. This happens when a team has no opponents for the next round due possibly to odd number of entrants. Highly ranked teams or players may also be awarded with a 'bye', early in a tournament, to avoid the risk of elimination.
