Monday, Lunardi revealed his weekly bracket and, sure enough, there's BYU, a No. 1 seed in the West in Denver, playing No. 16 seed Florida Atlantic, with the winner playing the winner of Washington/Kansas State.

Lunardi's other No. 1 seeds are Ohio State, Pittsburgh, and Kansas.

San Diego State is projected as a No. 3 seed while Utah State is a No. 8 seed.
