The 2018 NCAA Tournament is underway. The bracket was just revealed in full on TBS.

You can view the full field here.

Earlier today, a massive bubble game took place, as Davidson knocked off Rhode Island in their conference championship game. The Wildcats would NOT have made the 68-team field if they had lost.

Their win ended up knocking a bubble team out of the field. Which team was that?

The Selection Committee just revealed it during an interview on TBS.

That team: Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish were the first team OUT of the 68-team field.

That's pretty brutal for the Fighting Irish, which could have been a very dangerous NCAA Tournament team.

The games begin on Tuesday night, with two of the play-in contests. The following two play-in games will be played on Wednesday night.

The first round games start on Thursday and will run through Friday. Let's go!
