NIT Bracket Picks

The Huskers are dancing baby!

Alright, so it’s the NIT, so what you wanna fight about it? I am now going to defy every man’s dream at this time of year and pick the perfect NIT bracket!!!

The best part about the NIT? There’s no regions, they’re simply just referred to as “Left Bracket” and “Right Bracket” – that’s gold. I wish the Big Ten would’ve followed suit going with Left Division and Right Division instead of Legends and Leaders. And I’m serious.

By the way, Nebraska plays the Wichita St. Shockers on Wednesday at 6 PM on ESPN2 in Wichita.

Left Bracket 1st Round:

  • 1 Alabama over 8 Coastal Carolina
  • 4 New Mexico over 5 UTEP
  • 3 Missouri St. over 6 Murray St.
  • 7 Florida Atlantic over 2 Miami
  • 1 Colorado over 8 Texas Southern
  • 5 California over 4 Mississippi
  • 3 Colorado St. over 6 Fairfield
  • 7 Kent St. over 2 St. Mary’s

Right Bracket 1st Round:

  • 8 McNeese St. over 1 Boston College (Cinderella story!)
