ACC

Sideline Intel Bracketology: Feb. 16

There I was, Thursday afternoon, thinking to myself, “Man, there’s not a ton of change on this bracket I’m going to be releasing tomorrow.”

And then college basketball decided to be college basketball.

On Thursday night alone, Villanova fell at Providence, Saint Mary’s lost to San Francisco, Penn State obliterated Ohio State, Purdue lost to Wisconsin, and a wild night-cap saw Arizona take down rival Arizona State on the road.

Okay, now things are looking a bit different. And the bubble certainly isn’t immune to such movement.

Let’s take a look:
