RSN Bracketology Full Bracket Update V.6 (2/19)

RSN Bracket Trends Special (2/18)

Here is a breakdown of a number of teams currently either trending up or down both in terms of bracketology seeding and overall performance. Teams like North Carolina and Arizona have put out some impressive performances of late looking to improve their high seeds. Others such as Saint Bonaventure, Penn State, and Utah have come on strong of late, making a big push on the bubble. On the downside, Oklahoma continues to sputter in the Big 12 while Florida’s questionable SEC losses begin to mount. Washington and Boise State have suffered brutal losses of late to hinder their chances, while mid-major conference leaders New Mexico State, Montana, and Florida Gulf Coast have all dropped two straight respectively.
