This is a quick look at the bracket.
This should be the most important tournament to watch in the fall.
The bracket is filled with the most anticipated teams of the fall, and the top teams will battle it out in the first two games of this first round.
Here’s a look at what to expect:The first two weeks of the NCAA Tournament is when the teams are best prepared for their respective leagues.
The league is trying to avoid a repeat of the first week’s series between Duke and Duke, and they’ll be hoping for a similar outcome in the second week’s game against Notre Dame.
There will be a lot of games for everyone.
The ACC will host its first conference tournament in two decades, while the Big Ten will host the first conference tourney in more than a decade.
The Big 12 has to play in both its regular season and postseason games to get into the tournament.
That means it’ll be facing the toughest challenges to its playoff hopes in the East.
This will be the first year the league will face its divisional opponents, and it will have to get through the conference tournament without having to play a conference rival in order to make the NCAA tourney.
The Pac-12 will host three games, and if it loses out to the Big East, it will host one of its own in its first-ever conference tournament.
It’ll also face a tough task against a West team that has won nine games in a row, including a six-game sweep at UCLA.
There are two other Pac-10 games to play this week.
The teams meet on Wednesday night in Seattle, and then on Thursday night at the University of Utah, where the Ducks are 2-0.
The Mountain West will face three games and also face the first-time opponent of the week.
That’s Utah State, which will be playing its first game since being ranked No. 6 in the preseason.
The Broncos are 2 and 0 in their first games this season, and are hoping to improve on a season in which they lost nine games.
This will be Utah’s first conference game since beating Colorado State in the regular season finale, and its only chance to make it into the NCAA playoff.
The Atlantic Coast Conference will face four games.
It’s the only league that will be without a first-round opponent, and this one could be its first chance to advance from its conference tournament since 2012.
The conference has had a rough stretch of late, as the ACC and Big Ten both lost games.
There’s a chance that one of the Atlantic’s four remaining teams will get out of its first round, but the conference has not yet decided who will face who.
The MAC will play three games against teams that are not expected to play.
The Mustangs are a preseason No. 1 seed in the polls, but they’re 2-3 and have lost nine of their last 10 games.
This season, they have lost four of their final six games against top-seeded opponents.
The Wildcats will be looking to rebound from a 0-5 start, and have played some of their best basketball in recent weeks, winning eight of their past 10 games and ranking fifth in the nation.
The Southeastern Conference will play four games, but it’s not looking to make an early jump into the playoffs.
The SEC is 4-4 this season and has not advanced from its first tournament since 2010.
It will have one of it’s toughest games of a season, as Alabama is expected to go into this game without a top-seed.
The PAC-12 is expected by some to be one of three conferences to be in its bowl game.
The Pac-11 will play one game and the Mountain West plays two.
The SEC is expected, but not guaranteed, to make a trip to the College Football Playoff for the first time since 2011.
It has lost seven of its last eight games, including three of four against teams ranked in the top five of the preseason polls.
The Tigers are 2.5-point favorites against a conference with the third-highest turnover margin of any conference, but will be coming off a loss at Clemson, a game that resulted in an interception for an onside kick that led to a Tigers touchdown.
The loss also set up a road game against Missouri on the road, a team that lost to Georgia Tech in the ACC championship game.
The ACC will play two games.
The winner of these games will be seeded into its own conference tournament, and will play a first game against the top-ranked team from the other conference.
The AAC is expected in for a wild ride this season
