Who to hate: Thursday on the NCAA Tournament bubble

You rooting for a bubble team? Maybe you're a St. Mary's fan and you think it is absolutely insane that the Gaels might not get invited. Well get in line. Here are the games to watch and the teams to cheer against.

Iowa State vs Oklahoma, ESPN2, 12:30 EST: They are playing Oklahoma, who is in store for a low seed as well, but the Cyclones are likely more in danger of falling out of the tournament. The Bracket Matrix has them as the final 11-seed, and Lunardi has them as a 12-seed.

UAB vs Southern Miss, CBSS, 1:00: This is the quarterfinals of Conference USA, and you certainly don't want a team like UAB winning that tourney, but it's safe that they'll lose after they beat Southern Miss. USM is in the first four out at Bracket Matrix.

Arizona State vs UCLA, PACN, 3:00: The Sun Devils probably need at least two wins to get in, but a win here against a definite Tourney team will be huge on their resume. Lunardi currently has ASU in the next four out.

Mississippi State vs Tennessee, ESPN3, 3:30: The Volunteers are hot and the committee loves hot. Bracket Matrix has them in as the 2nd to last 12-seed, and a loss against a horrible team would knock them out.

Utah vs Cal, PACN: 9:00: Most likely Cal is already a lock, but stranger things have happened. Losing to Utah could cause their fans to at least sweat a bit.

Northwestern vs Iowa, ESPN2, 9:00: Beating Northwestern might not get Iowa into the tourney, but if they advance and pick up a big win, they should slip in. They are currently in the next four out at Lunardi, so you want them to lose here before they gain any momentum.

Baylor vs Oklahoma State, ESPN3, 9:30: This might be the biggest game of the day. Bracket Matrix and Lunardi agree that Baylor is part of the first four out, and a win vs the Cowboys would be huge.

Everyone in the ACC besides NC State: The top three seeds are in for the ACC. NC State is in. Virginia is the most bubbleish of the ACC teams, but they don't play until tomorrow. The last things bubble teams want to see is someone from 6-12 making a run to the finals.
