A chaotic weekend in college basketball has dramatically altered the rankings and potentially this year's tournament bracket. With only a handful of games left to play for all teams, ESPN's Joe Lunardi has released a new Bracketology.

The biggest winners of the weekend were likely the Kansas Jayhawks, who reclaimed the No. 1 ranking and may have all but locked up a one-seed in the tournament. Kansas topped No. 1 Baylor on the road to re-assert themselves as the team to beat in college basketball.

Meanwhile, San Diego State finally saw their undefeated run come to an end with a loss to UNLV. West Coast Conference power Gonzaga fell to BYU, ending their dominating run in the WCC.

But despite those losses, Lunardi doesn't see it affecting their top seeding on Selection Sunday--yet. All four of his one seeds remain unchanged as of now.

Here are the top four seed lines in Joe Lunardi's new Bracketology, via ESPN:

East Region:

  1. San Diego State
  2. Duke
  3. Seton Hall
  4. Penn State

Midwest Region:

  1. Kansas
  2. Dayton
  3. Louisville
  4. Auburn

South Region:

  1. Baylor
  2. Maryland
  3. Villanova
  4. Kentucky

West Region:

  1. Gonzaga
  2. Florida State
  3. Creighton
  4. Oregon

There are only a few games to go in the regular season, but the conference tournaments are where we could see the brackets completely upended.

The coming week will see a few compelling top 25 matchups that could certainly change the landscape before March.

Will this be the bracket come Selection Sunday?
