Bracketology: January 20th

 

Our weekly and eventual Daily Field of 65 continues on Inauguration Day. The Bracketology field is based on how the tourney looks "as of this moment." Arrows indicate a team that moved up or down based on last week's performance. (Just because a team won or lost doesn't necessarily mean they'll move substantially though.)

 

Note: For the first time this week, conference standings are used to project the conference champions as opposed to RPI. In the case of a tie in the standings, the highest RPI team is used to break the tie. 

 

Movement:

Arrows indicate movement by seed. Two arrows equals a change of two seeds, etc..
