Ducks get favorable bid in final bracketology before Selection Sunday

We will learn the fate of the Oregon Ducks on Sunday afternoon when the entire NCAA Tournament bracket is released during the annual Selection Sunday show. For now, though, we continue to speculate about whom Dana Altman’s team will face in the first round of the tournament.

According to ESPN’s Joe Lunardi, the Ducks are likely to be an No. 11 seed after beating the Colorado Buffaloes in the Pac-12 championship game on Saturday night. In Lunardi’s final bracketology before Selection Sunday, he has Oregon going up against the No. 6 Texas Tech Red Raiders in the Midwest Region.

Texas Tech finished fourth in the Big 12 this year, going 23-10.

One benefit for Oregon in this scenario: It would play the Red Raiders in Spokane, Washington, allowing a large portion of the Ducks fan base to easily get to the game.

The final bracket will be released on Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. PT on CBS.
