Bracketology 3/6/17

The biggest bubble action on Sunday was Wichita State locking up a bid with their win over Illinois State. I have the Redbirds outside the field for now, but I'm going to be continuously running my model this week and as other bubble teams win or lose I could see Illinois State still getting in.

There's no bubble teams in action on Monday (although I guess UNC Wilmington has a very small chance at getting a bid if they lose to Charleston). Most of the intrigue lies between the 13 and 16 lines.

Starting tomorrow I will begin awarding locks and should-be-in status as well.

15: South Dakota, Cal State Bakersfield, UC Irvine, North Dakota
16: Northern Kentucky, North Carolina Central, (New Orleans/Jacksonville State), (Mount St. Mary's/Texas Southern)
