Bracketology: Experts Say Penn State Is In

In 90 minutes, Penn State will take on Ohio State in the Big Ten Tournament final. If they somehow figure out how to upset the Buckeyes, they will earn the Big Ten’s automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament.

However, after Saturday’s victory over Michigan State, bracketologists all over the Internet have Penn State comfortably in the tournament, even avoiding the play-in games created this year after the tournament expanded to 68 teams.

ESPN analyst Joe Lunardi updated his bracket this morning, making Penn State a 12-seed playing Xavier in the first round while CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm gives the Nittany Lions even more breathing room, listing them as an 11-seed taking on West Virginia.

These brackets, of course, do not take into account the results of today’s games. How do you think the brackets will shake out later today? Is Penn State a lock or do they have to at least put up a fight against Ohio State today to solidify their tourney status? Let us know in the comments.
