ACC Continues to Dominate Bracket Projections

Nine, count 'em, nine ACC teams make up the projected field of 68 today, with four others sitting right on the bubble. It's been a fantastic year for the conference as they have the opportunity to match the record of 11 tournament teams set by the old Big East in 2011. And they could have as many as 13 if the chips fall the right way. Georgia Tech, Wake Forest and Syracuse currently sit in the first four out with Pittsburgh right behind them. Miami is the second-to-last team in at the moment.

Here's your updated bracket look. What's interesting is that, today, the committee will unveil their current top 16 teams in the field. So this will give us a look at what the committee is thinking right now and where teams stand at the top, especially in the race for the top line, which is currently still held by Villanova, Gonzaga, Kansas and Baylor.

Last Four Byes: Arkansas, TCU, Michigan State, California
Last Four In: Marquette, Kansas State, Miami (FL), Wichita State
First Four Out: Georgia Tech, Rhode Island, Wake Forest, Syracuse
Next Four Out: Pittsburgh, Illinois, Auburn, Michigan
