Seton Corridor will get the second of their residence video games this week in opposition to the Large East leaders, so it’s alternative but additionally hazard time. Clemson wants good wins, and would want to beat Syracuse at residence to remain proper on the bubble. TCU and Texas may very well be an enormous sport. Temple might want to beat UCF to have any probability at an at-large. Arizona State is squarely on the bubble and any loss might harm. Xavier can swing issues in an enormous method within the Large East with one other highway win at St. John’s. In the meantime, for different bubble groups, a Murray State shut win over Belmont is the worst doable consequence as Belmont has a professional case. In the meantime, within the Atlantic Solar, Lipscomb dropping within the closing to Liberty would even be hazard. You don’t need to be, say, TCU sitting on the bubble when Lipscomb gained in Fort Price earlier this season.
