With the selection show preview today it really looks like the committee is looking for road victories, non conference strength of schedule, as well as big wins. I am sticking to what I have been doing in hopes to stay the course and see where things turn out. Of my top 16 I had 15 of them correct and Arizona as my 17th team which the committee has in.
With this new bracket I moved Michigan State to the West to allow For North Carolina and Duke to be in different regions as Clemson. I also moved USC and Oklahoma State to the 12 line to avoid a previous match-up this season.
