Teams with a gold background have secured automatic bids.
✴️ = new bracket entrants
⬆️ and ⬇️ = bracket returnees’ seed movement relative to Friday’s bracket
(#) = Overall rank of the top 16 teams (top four seeds in each region)
Before I publish Sunday morning’s bracket, I will perform yet another complete scrub of the seed list from 1 to 68, so don’t be surprised if there are further changes in less than 24 hours.
Enjoy this busy Saturday! I will update the bubble picture as events warrant.
