With college football over, we’re pretty close to fully turning our attention towards the 2019 NCAA Tournament, with less than two months until March Madness tips off.
We’ve seen some monumental upsets in recent days, which have shaken up the picture a bit.
Nevada, which had the best chance to run the table of the undefeated teams heading into the weekend, per most metrics, got blown out at middling New Mexico.
Kansas also suffered a major setback, falling to Iowa State 77-60.
The Jayhawks will have a solid case for a No. 1 seed if it wins its 15th straight Big 12 title, but with star center Udoka Azubuike out for the year, that may be a difficult path.
NCAA college basketball insider Andy Katz released his new 68-team NCAA Tournament bracket projection.
The current No. 1 seeds are no big surprise: Duke (East), Tennessee (West), Michigan (South), and Virginia (Midwest).
