Notes:

  • Auto bid holders in this section are noted by the conference names in parentheses.
  • New entrants are marked with an asterisk.
  • Arrows indicate movement up or down the seed list (down to the spot on the seed list).
  • For at-large candidates only, the numbers in parentheses after the team’s name are as follows: NET, record vs. D1 opposition, record in Quad 1 and Quad 2 games, record in Quad 1 games only. NET data reflects games played through Sunday, February 2nd. Records reflect games played through Monday, February 3rd. I pulled the quality win info from WarrenNolan.com’s selection sheets.
