2011 NCAA Tournament Projections

> Check out all of the most recent NCAA Tournament predictions from College Sports Fans!

This season’s NCAA tournament has expanded to 68 teams, making it the biggest in history. The new selection procedures are therefore very important to state:

  • 31 conferences receive automatic bids to the NCAA Tournament

  • The remainder of the bids will be filled by 37 at large teams

  • The lowest four rated conference champions will compete for two 16 seeds

  • The lowest four rated at-large teams will compete for two seeds, likely in the 10-12 range

So essentially, the little league conference champions won’t be singled out for the ‘play-in’ games, allowing the last few at large teams to earn a play in bid as well.
