Daily Bracketology: Wednesday's Update

    
March 5th, 2008

Another day, another daily Field of 65. (Except no Saturday's since there's little action Friday). This is a field based on how the tourney looks "as of this moment." For one-bid leagues, I simply include the conference leader at the time of publishing. In case of ties, I use my projected winner.

 

Arrows indicate a team that moved up or down based on last night's performance. (Just because a team won or lost doesn't necessarily mean they'll move substantially.)

 

Note on Wednesday's Movement: Purdue's OT loss to Ohio State knocks them down to a 5 seed, pushing Indiana up to a 4 and Notre Dame a spot as well. Kansas State switches spots with UNLV.. and Arkansas also swaps position with South Alabama after losing. New Mexico's big win over UNLV moves them up from a 13 seed to a 12, knocking UAB down close to the cut-off point. Ohio State also moves into the 4th team out spot, replacing Syracuse.
