Bracketology Bubble Watch: Memphis, Northwestern boost NCAA Tournament profiles

Kim O’Reilly, CBS Sports

Memphis and Northwestern celebrated Super Bowl Sunday with wins at home over Tulane and Penn State respectively. The Wildcats were able to stay in the bracket because of it, while the Tigers are still trying to climb back into it.

Meanwhile, Seton Hall fell to Villanova and fell off the bubble, at least for now. There is still a month or so to go before Selection Sunday.

Two of Monday’s bubble teams in action have a chance to make a big splash.
