New Bracket, Lockbox, OSS

Congrats to Central Connecticut (Northeast) and Weber State (Big Sky), and welcome to the bracket.

Today's bracket has the same teams as yesterday, but with a few adjusted seeds. The Lockbox has been updated as well.

The OSS is up to date through games completed at 10.54 pm CT.

LOTS of action today.

Today's GOI
--ACC first round. Clemson/Florida State loser is OUT for good. Georgia Tech needs to beat Wake Forest to rest easy.
--A-10 quarterfinals. Xavier and especially UMass need good runs to keep AL hopes alive.
--Big 12 first round. Oklahoma State may be dead already. Texas Tech needs to avoid a loss to Colorado. Missouri needs a run to the finals for any hope.
--Big East quarterfinals. A win over Louisville would help West Virginia a great deal.
--Big Ten first round. Michigan and Illinois are in must win mode today.
--Big West second round.
--CUSA quarterfinals.
--MAC quarterfinals.
--Mountain West quarterfinals. UNLV and BYU are IN. Air Force can LOCK it up with a win today.
--Pac-10 quarterfinals. Stanford may need to beat USC to get IN. Washington needs to continue their late charge to have any hope. Everyone else is in pretty good shape, although Southern Cal might sweat a little if they lose today.
--SEC first round. Alabama must beat Kentucky. Georgia and Arkansas need deep runs.
--SWAC semifinals.
--Southland quarterfinals.
--WAC quarterfinals. New Mexico State and Utah State need to get to the finals for any hope.
