For college basketball fans, Christmas falls in March. Seeing the bracket revealed and printing ten out to practice is much more enjoyable than opening up any Christmas present. As people fill out their bracket, they will be faced with many questions: How many first round upsets do I pick? Will a 12 seed beat a 5 seed again? How far can I have a Cinderella go? Who wins it all? While we can break it down all we want, everyone knows you can’t exactly predict the games flawlessly. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t try to give ourselves the best chance to win as possible. So without further ado, here are some teams from each tier that you should be thinking about when filling out your bracket.

The inaugural Boca Raton Bowl was an exciting and high scoring battle that saw a kickoff returned for a touchdown, five total touchdowns accounted for by quarterback Rakeem Cato and a historic 18-catch performance by Marshall receiver Tommy Shuler in a resounding 52-23 victory for the Thundering Herd. However, the bowl did not begin with the teams storming onto the field to the cheers of the thousands of fans, nor with the opening kickoff. Rather, the game itself was the final stage of months of preparation by both the city of Boca Raton and ESPN.
