Alright bubble teams, we're down to about 18 hours until your fate is determined. There are still some games out there, and still teams you need to hate on for no other reason than you like yours better. Here are the games of note, and who to root against.
Southern Miss vs Memphis, 11:30, CBS: You can't hate all day if you don't start in the morning. The nightmare was Southern Miss reaching the Conference USA finals, because now they are in with a win. A loss means they probably come up short, as Lunardi has them as his 4th team out, and Bracket Matrix has them No. 5 out.
Alabama vs Florida, 1:00, ABC: Bama stumbled down the stretch to fall off the bubble, but have now advanced to the SEC semis and climbed right back on. Will a win over Florida be enough to leap a few teams and make the field? Maybe, maybe not, but you certainly don't want them in the finals facing a weaker team. Today is the day to lose.
Vanderbilt vs Ole Miss, 3:00, ABC: Petrified of an Ole Miss vs Alabama SEC final? You should be. Lunardi and the hive mind at Bracket Matrix agree that the Rebels are currently the 3rd team out.
Maryland vs North Carolina, 3:00, ESPN: Raise your hand if you had Maryland winning easy over Duke. No one? That one win was enough to get them really close. Beating UNC could very well seal the deal.
Ohio vs Akron, 6:30, ESPN2: The Zips might slip in with an at-large if they lose this game. Ohio won't.
