Bracket

SB Nation 2014 NCAA March Madness Coverage

The dust on the First Four has settled, and the second round of the 2014 NCAA Tournament is set to tip off. The first big day of the Big Dance features the tourney's top team and a number of intriguing matchups.

Because everyone at SB Nation loves the unifying factor of a glorious bracket, we are providing a printable bracket for the NCAA Tournament that you can fill in like your own personal scorecard.

Florida, the overall No. 1 seed, is the only top seed in action on Thursday. The Gators take to the court at 4:10 p.m. ET on TBS, facing No. 16 Albany, which defeated fellow No. 16 Mount St. Mary's on Tuesday. Florida is one of the hottest teams in the NCAA Tournament not named Wichita State. The Gators are riding a 26-game winning streak and haven't lost since Dec. 2.

There is bound to be at least one upset on Thursday with three of the four No. 5 and No. 12 seeds hitting the floor in the first day of the second round. No. 12 Harvard is one of the more popular upset picks and it will take on No. 5 Cincinnati just in time for an early lunch. No. 5 Saint Louis and No. 12 NC State hit the court basically at the same time as No. 5 Oklahoma and No. 12 North Dakota State, just in time for a reasonable early departure from the day job.

No. 4 Louisville begin its title defense in the evening as the Cardinals take on No. 13 Manhattan. A major story line that popped up right after the bracket was revealed is how low of a seed Louisville was awarded. Now it is time for the Cardinals to prove they belong in the conversations of top teams.
