Bracketology Bubble Watch: Texas, Oregon, Virginia among teams who could use wins Saturday to boost profiles

Saturday is an important day for 15 teams on the bubble to make the NCAA Tournament

There are two “double bubble” games on Saturday, including one between two teams among my last four in Friday’s projected bracket.

Time is starting to run out on all of these teams. The end of the regular season is just a couple weeks away. The bubble will start to shrink after this week as the number of games left gets smaller.

Check out all the teams on Palm’s Bubble Watch, the field of the 68 and the entire bracket on the Bracketology hub

Note – all references to NCAA Tournament selection records and trends based on NET rankings excludes the 2021 tournament. Due to shortened schedules and a relatively small number of non-conference games, those rankings are not reliable enough to be considered.
