Bracketology 12/29/17

A number of changes throughout the bracket in this update. First is the Pac-12, as Arizona State is now on the 1 line, although I don't expect them to stay there. UCLA moves into the field, giving the Pac-12 a 3rd team in, although USC and Utah are close. Both mid-majors and the Big Ten are having a weak year as well, and the conference that's capitalizing on these extra bids the most is the SEC. They have 8 teams in, including 6 on the top 7 lines. Expect the next update shortly after New Year's.

2: Texas A&M, West Virginia, Virginia, Kansas
