Bracketology: Saturday Morning Edition

First it was Saturday morning cartoons, now it’s Saturday morning bracketology.

After a week that saw the teams ranked #3, 4, 5, and 6 in the AP Top 25 lose – Oklahoma, Iowa, North Carolina, and Maryland – we’ve had a lot of movement at the top again.  In fact, the movement is throughout the bracket.  With just a couple weeks until the conference tournaments, the stakes start to get higher.  The dead of winter is actually pretty exciting, after all!

As usual, moves up or down seed lines are in parentheses.  Teams projected as automatic qualifiers are in bold.
