Bald Prophet Bracket Projection Update: Aggies Raided and Last Second Heroics

Marc DaleyAnalyst IMarch 12, 2009

After last night's activity, we have our first team from a BCS conference to move down. Texas Tech came back from a double-digit deficit to beat Texas A&M. The Aggies have moved down to a seven seed (and I'll admit I had them a bit high at a six to begin with).

Portland State and Robert Morris used last-second heroics to clinch their bids. Had Montana State been able to hold off the Vikings, we would have seen one of the proud, the few—the teams with overall losing records.
