*Bolded and underlined teams are auto-bids
**Teams that are first in line on the S-curve from their respective conferences are considered auto-bids if they are high enough to receive an at-large. If no team from a conference is high enough on the S-curve to receive an at-large, the conference leader is given the auto-bid for the purposes of my bracket.
