This is more of a reactionary update rather than a full data scrub. A lot of teams 6 seed and below lost but didn't move down or sometimes even moved up a spot because there just aren't that many teams with solid profiles. From last prediction 4 of the last 6 in lost, but I don't have anyone moving out. This will likely change with the Monday update.

Auto qualifiers in bold.

Next out: USC, Louisville, Washington, Marquette, LSU, Utah, Miss State, Oregon, Georgia, Penn State, Nebraska, Western Kentucky, Boise State, Maryland, Boston College, Notre Dame
