Bracketology 2/8/17

Syracuse is in my bracket for the first time all year, thanks to their 5th win in a row. They move in at the expense of Arkansas, who is out for the first time all year due to their 3rd loss in 4 games. The SEC is a 3-bid league for now, but half of the first 8 out are from the SEC. Maryland, South Carolina and Northwestern all tumble with bad losses. Baylor/Oklahoma State highlights tomorrow's slate, although Virginia Tech/Miami, Providence/Seton Hall and Mississippi/Tennessee might be more important for the bubble picture.

3: North Carolina, Oregon, Butler, Kentucky
4: Cincinnati, Florida, Purdue, Wisconsin
