Huguenin: Projecting the NCAA field of 68
"Selection Sunday" is two days away, and here is our latest projection at how we think the field will look Sunday night.
It's important to note that this is a projection of how teams are going to finish, not how the field would look if it were decided today.
We will update this projection again Saturday, once in the morning and again around midnight Eastern time.
Teams are grouped by projected seed. At the bottom is a breakdown by league of the number of projected bids and some information on the makeup of the field, the selection committee and the sites.
Remember that this is the first season of a 68-team field. There will be four play-in games this season: two involving teams that will be No. 16 seeds and two involving the final four at-large teams. The supposition for this exercise is the final four at-large teams will be No. 12 seeds. That's why there are six teams at the Nos. 12 and 16 seedings.
(Note: Asterisked teams must win their conference titles to receive an NCAA bid, while teams in bold already have clinched bids.)
