NCAA Bracketology: Colorado State drops, San Diego State and Wyoming stand pat in latest ESPN bracketology

UNLV is also no longer a "next four out" team.

ESPN's Joe Lunardi released his most recent projected NCAA Tournament field, or "bracketology," and he predicted three Mountain West schools would make the Big Dance: San Diego State, Colorado State and Wyoming.

He also projected those three teams making the tournament in his first bracketology of the year, but he dropped the Rams from the 7-seed in the West region to the 10-seed in the Midwest region. Colorado State is also one of Lunardi's four "on the bubble" teams.

SDSU remained a 7-seed, but Lunardi moved the Aztecs to the East region, where they'd square off against Xavier in the first game, possibly setting up a Sweet 16 against the Kansas Jayhawks (the boys from Kansas didn't go home happy last time they played SDSU...).

No change for Wyoming, which just lost its first conference game to the Aztecs. The Cowboys are in the exact same spot as Lunardi's first projected bracket: 13-seed in the South region. Their opponent changed, however, from Wichita State to Iowa State.

UNLV was a "next four out" team in Lunardi's first bracket, but with a loss against Boise State after a bad loss to Nevada, the Rebels have severely hurt their chances to play in late March.
