March Madness 2020: Conference tournament brackets, schedules, locations, NCAA Tournament automatic bids
See when all the automatic bids are being handed out for the NCAA Tournament
We're closer to March -- which signals the start of March Madness -- than we are to when the 2019-20 college basketball season kicked off on Nov. 5. How wild is that? This season has flown by, but it's hardly flown under the radar. 12 top-five teams have lost to unranked opponents already, and since opening night, six different teams have been ranked No. 1 as the top spot has served as a turnstile of upsets. If this season's a foreshadowing of the postseason, we may be in for the most unpredictable NCAA Tournament ever.
And we still have two months of regular season left to play! Those that survive will be rewarded: 32 automatic NCAA Tournament bids will be divvied out through various conference tournaments throughout the country. Below is a list of this year's tournament schedule.
