NCAA Tournament Automatic Bids: Who’s In for March Madness

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-East Regional-Wisconsin vs Florida

March Madness is back, and after last season’s cancellation of the entire NCAA Tournament, it’s time to battle for the 2021 National Championship.

The Big 12 will host its conference tournament in Kansas City this week, with the winner of the Tournament being the automatic qualifier for the NCAA Tournament. Of course, the Big 12 doesn’t have much to worry about. The league has seven teams comfortably in the tournament. Heartland College Sports will be covering the Big 12 Tournament the entire week.

But there are plenty of other leagues across the country that are battling for their conference’s only spot in March Madness. Throughout the week, we’ll update this tracker every time an automatic bid for the NCAA Tournament is decided.
