The committee's top 16 reveal went largely as expected. They had Duke #1 overall, not Virginia, so the Blue Devils' win in Charlottesville on Saturday only tightens their grip on the top overall spot. I had all 16 teams correct though, and just swapped Marquette and Louisville's seed lines. The weekend's bubble action was mixed, like usual. Clemson got a nice win over Virginia Tech, Arizona State knocked off Washington, and Butler picked up a road win at Georgetown. On the losing end, Indiana lost yet again (this time at home to Ohio State), Oklahoma dropped to 3-8 in the Big 12 and Utah State fell at SDSU. The biggest bubble games of the next 2 days are Oklahoma at Baylor and Butler at St. John's, both visitors will be looking to pick up big Q1 road wins.
