Why wait until March to prove you know your bracket-busting prowess, SportsNation?
This weekend brings the annual BracketBusters extravaganza back to the ESPN family of networks, pitting 26 mid-major powerhouses against each other in one last high-profile showcase to pad their NCAA tournament credentials. Beginning with the Illinois State-Niagara tussle Friday night and not ending until a few strokes before midnight Saturday, when George Mason and Creighton wrap up, there are a whole host of hidden gems for you to enjoy.
Unless, of course, they aren't so hidden to you. Step up and prove you know which teams are really set to play Cinderella in March. Pick the winners of all 13 games on ESPN networks and see how your picks stack up against the rest of SportsNation.
(All games Saturday unless otherwise noted. Records as of Feb. 18.)
