With the 12-over-5 seeds such as a popular upset pick, here are the number of brackets picking each of the 12 seeds in the Round of 64: -- Stephen F. Austin (over Utah): 28.1 percent -- Buffalo (over West Virginia): 26.1 percent -- Wyoming (over Northern Iowa): 20.8 percent -- Wofford (over Arkansas): 16.1 percent
Mountaineers will play Friday in Columbus against the Bulls in the same region as undefeated No. 1 Kentucky.
UPSET WATCH: Many will pick 12th-seeded Buffalo over 5th-seeded West Virginia, with good reason.
