With Northwestern sitting squarely on the NCAA tournament bubble, it's time for a new daily feature, in which I take a look at every game relevant to Northwestern's NCAA chances and tell you whom you should be rooting for.
Team to root for: Arkansas
Alabama's been in the top 25 much of the season but has been struggling lately thanks to a lack of offense and the suspension of several key players. They still probably get in, but a loss to middling Arkansas would get them closer to the bubble.
Team to root for: USC, however reluctantly
Fuck you, Kevin O'Neill.
Ok, now that pleasantries are out of the way, a USC win tonight would officially slam the door on Arizona's very thin at large hopes.
Team to root for: Louisville
Cincinnati feels like they should be a lock at 19-8 (9-5) but their non-conference schedule was a total joke and they have a couple awful losses.
Team to root for: Utah
Utah has by far the worst KenPom ranking (currently #304) of any BCS team since KenPom had a site, so they aren't gonna win this, but if a miracle occurs and they do win, it will put a serious dent in Cal's at large chances.
Team to root for: Stanford
Colorado needs to win out to have a realistic at-large chance.
Team to root for: Gonzaga
Gonzaga's in, BYU's on the bubble.
