64-thumbWelcome to Bracketville’s home for Bracketology.

This is where you will find bracket projections for the 2020 NCAA Tournament. At the time of publication (update) the bracket reflects an overview of where the NCAA landscape currently stands.  Thank you for your continued interest.

NOTES:

  • With the Ivy League opting out, there are 37 at-large bids and 31 automatic qualifiers.
  • The NCAA has not released its updated NET rankings with its newest formula.
  • Due to cancellations and postponements, we are presented with a wide range of schedule considerations.
  • Some additional teams (such as Auburn and Arizona) have withdrawn from consideration.  Oklahoma State has appealed and remains viable at the moment.

Teams in all CAPS reflect automatic bid (exceptions made to traditional teams with acronyms (VCU, UCF, etc.)
