For the first time, we'll go with two projections in the same week. A reminder, this does not project future results, only considers games played to date. An * denotes the current conference leader or (if a tie) best RPI in a multiple-bid conference. RPI is noted in parentheses.

Maryland joins the field as the Big Ten's 5th bid, and for the first time Nebraska becomes one of the "Keep An 8 On".
