We have an upset brewing in a conference title game this afternoon. Bubble teams should be worrying.

Davidson, which needs a win today to make the NCAA Tournament, is trailing Rhode Island by just one point at halftime.

The NCAA Tournament selection committee admitted earlier that the 68-team field is set except for one spot. It comes down to the Davidson-Rhode Island game.

"The drama of Sunday: One team is the biggest Rhode Island fan in the world tomorrow. A Davidson win knocks them out. (And no, I can't tell you who that is.) Find out at 6 p.m. ET with the selection show in TBS."

The halftime score is not good news for these bubble teams.

It's Rhode Island 33, Davidson 32 after 20 minutes of play.

If you're a bubble team (or a fan of a bubble team), get to a TV and start rooting your heart out for Rhode Island.

The game is being televised on CBS.
