Bracketology 2011: The Final Look Before Apple Cup Part 3

Tonight is a make or break night for both Washington schools. In a game that is scheduled to tip off at 8:30, but probably won't until about 9, the NCAA hopes of both teams are hanging in the balance. For Washington State, they sit firmly on the bubble. In all but one bracket projection they are one of the first eight teams out of the dance. If they complete the season sweep against Washington, they may be in, but it gives them a win over a shot at playing another good team in what will likely be UCLA.

For the Huskies, a loss may throw them out of the tournament. They will play this game with out Venoy Overton and may play it without Justin Holiday. They need a great performance from everyone on the team to ensure a win.

Tonight will do a lot to decide what Pac-10 teams are dancing. It's The Cougars. It's The Huskies. Drama is bound to be happening.

Here are the most recent bracket projections. We'll be back with another look this Saturday and see how the first rounds of the Pac-10 impact the bracket projections.
