italics = already eliminated from conference tournament

Bold = Already won conference tournament

I don’t really think Notre Dame, Wyoming, Memphis, or Michigan should have to sweat much, there are really only 4 At Large spots up for grabs, and there’s obviously potential bid stealers in the AAC, Mountain West, Atlantic 10, and technically in other leagues too.

Xavier and BYU, despite being the first two teams out, likely have zero shot, because they don’t have a chance to improve their resume, while the next 6 teams below them (As well as Colorado, Oregon, Virginia or others) do have that chance, so they’re both all but eliminated.

Texas A&M/Florida is an elimination game, winner stays in the hunt, loser is out. Same with Oregon vs Colorado. The winner of the aforementioned Oregon/Colorado game would likely join the Next 4 Out, replacing the loser of the Florida/Texas A&M game.

Indiana/Michigan is likely win and in, lose and out, for the Hoosiers. For Michigan, they’re likely in no matter what.

Virginia Tech could make things interesting if they beat Notre Dame to set up a matchup with UNC or UVA.

Other Bubble teams in action today include: UAB (vs FAU, 9:30) and Wyoming (at UNLV, 5:30).
