Lance & Kris go over our the stories this week and the top news of the weekend is the bubble. Coming into the weekend, we had the potential for an enormous bubble going into the final week and subsequent selection Sunday. Nearly all the teams that needed to win did just that. A lot of the teams that didn’t necessarily need two straight wins lost.
Second top story, we have 4 teams who have clinched their respective conference auto bids. Jacksonville State and Wofford cemented their auto-bid position. Wofford holds the tiebreaker over Furman and if JSU loses next weekend, they’d still hold the tiebreaker over Austin Peay. Then
San Diego fully clinched the Pioneer, a conference in which their average margin of victory has been 35 points per game.
Finally, in the NEC, the conference where teams take their turns getting auto-bids, Central Connecticut State upsets Duquesne to take the title. This will be the 7th different school to have nabbed the auto-bid in the 8 years the conference has had one. Only Bryant remains as not having reached the playoffs yet.
They take a quick look at how the AGS Poll shook out this week.
