I don’t expect this to change at all before the selection show starts at 6:00 EST on CBS. Ohio State and Illinois are the only teams still playing in the B1G and both squads are absolute locks.

It also looks like every other team listed above is safe. Maryland and Michigan State are on the edge, but right now, I don’t think there’s any reason for their fans to be nervous.

It looks like both are safely in the field.

Make sure to check back once the selection show gets underway. I’ll have all the bracket info as it rolls in!
