Well, a lot of teams on or near the bubble did not have a great day yesterday. NC State, Syracuse, Washington, Arizona State, and Oklahoma all went down. They will all sit and wait to hear their fate on Selection Sunday. There was some bubble teams that did help their case yesterday as Oklahoma State and Notre Dame inched closer to the field with wins. Marquette and Texas both eked out wins against bottom tier conference opponents to stay in the field for now. There’s a full slate of games today to enjoy but here are some you should keep an eye that could impact the bubble: Big 12 Quarterfinals (12:30 pm, 2:30 pm, 7 pm, 9 pm), Louisville-Virginia (12 pm), Alabama-Texas A&M (1 pm), Stanford-UCLA (5:30 pm), Notre Dame-Duke (7 pm), Marquette-Villanova (7 pm), Oregon State-USC (9 pm).
