Bracketology 2012: Colorado State Could Be A No. 12 Seed

Most expect the Colorado State Rams to take care of business tonight against the TCU Horned Frogs in the first round of the Mountain West Tournament, which tips-off at 3:30 p.m. locally. SB Nation's Chris Dobbertean's latest Bracketology for the NCAA's Field of 68 sees the Rams as a potential No. 12 seed. Right now, he has Colorado State playing fifth-seeded Florida State in the South regional.

Dobbertean has CSU as one of the last four teams to receive byes, meaning they won't be apart of the "First Four" action that leads into the traditional field of 64.

Several teams that are just avoiding an extra game in Dayton, like Colorado State, Southern Mississippi, USF and the bracket's two Pac-12 teams, Washington and California, will have chances to move up, or down, as Thursday unfolds. Unfortunately, for BYU and West Virginia fans, their teams will have to sit and wait to see if they fall into this group.
