Bracket Breakdown

This is the first in-season Field of 65 so far this season; it reflects all games played in the 2005 portion of the season. This is not what we think the bracket will look like come March; it is what we think it would look like if the season ended today. Beginning in February, March Madness All Season will release a projected bracket (with seeds and matchups) every week. The one-bid conference winners are the teams with the best RPI in each conference (yes I know, not much difficulty in picking those teams).

ACC (6): Duke, Maryland, North Carolina State, Boston College, Wake Forest, North Carolina
Big East (8): Connecticut, Villanova, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Louisville, Syracuse, West Virginia, DePaul
Big Ten (7): Illinois, Michigan State, Indiana, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa
Big 12 (5): Iowa State, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas State, Colorado
