Bracketology: Joe Lunardi releases Oct. 3 projections for 2020 NCAA Tournament

Cassius Winston, Jordan Nwora, Bracketology

ESPN college basketball bracketologist Joe Lunardi has released his Oct. 3 bracketology for the 2020 NCAA Tournament, with some familiar teams leading the way with No. 1 seeds.

Michigan State, Louisville, Florida, and Kansas are at the top of the seeding list, and all four teams have national title expectations heading into the season.

The group of No. 2 seeds have the same goal, as North Carolina, Kentucky, Duke, and Maryland are projected just outside of the top four.

Of course, the NCAA Tournament bubble picture is always fascinating, and Lunardi has Cincinnati, Iowa, Arizona State, and Dayton has his last four teams into the field.

Mississippi State, Oklahoma, USC, and Kansas State are the last four out, with Alabama, UCLA, Syracuse, and Minnesota right behind them.

In terms of the race for the most bids by conference, the Big Ten has the edge with eight teams in Lunardi’s bracketology. The Big East is next up with seven teams, while the SEC and ACC both have six.

The 2019-20 college basketball season tips off on Nov. 5, and obviously, Lunardi’s bracket projections will change quite a bit before the start of the 2020 NCAA Tournament in March.
