There was a lot of action on my 3-line yesterday. Iowa State knocked off Oklahoma in Ames, and Baylor lost to a Texas team that had dropped 8 of 11 and was desperate for a resume booster. After the dust settled, not a whole lot changed on my bracket. Baylor dropped two snake spots, but maintained a spot on the 3-line thanks to a bevy of quality wins, and a #3 SOS. Oklahoma dropped just one snake line, but since they were previously on the end of the 3-line that means down to a #4 for the Sooners, replaced by Louisville.
In other games, Boise State knocked off San Diego State, solidifying their tournament selection. Barring any major collapses, the Mountain West will have three teams in the field (including Colorado State), possibly four if Utah State or Wyoming pulls off a conference tournament victory.
Tonight will be Kentucky's final road game of the season, against a formidable Georgia team. The Wildcats will still be heavy favorites, but this may be their last tough test before they reach the Sweet 16. The game will be on the 4-letter flagship at 8pm CST if you're interested.
