With the first round of the 64-team bracket starting today, the Auburn Tigers and the New Mexico State Aggies will battle in one of the earlier games on the slate. Considering that a usual upset pick is a No. 12 seed defeating a No. 5 seed, all eyes will be on this potential bracket-busting matchup.
Auburn won eight straight games to finish the regular season and win the SEC Tournament. The duo of Jared Harper and Bryce Brown can simply dismantle opponents from the perimeter.
New Mexico State won 30 games for the first time in school history, and the team can actually match Auburn with three-point shooting. The Aggies make an average of 9.4 triples per game.
One of the underappreciated aspects of March Madness is that fans can watch the action from basically anywhere. Even though viewing each game on television is the usual preference for most, they're also available online.
