Bracketology 2011 NCAA Tournament: Texas On Track For Two Seed, Baylor Sneaks In

College basketball saw a fair share of upsets this weekend - two of which Texas teams were involved in. The University of Texas Longhorns blew a 22 point lead in Colorado to lose to the Buffaloes and the Baylor Bears upset the Texas A&M Aggies. Baylor's win was more important to them than Texas' loss to the Longhorns, but it still may wind up costing Texas a No. 1 seed

The Longhorns, in Blogging the Bracket's latest look at the bracket, are on track to be one of the four two seeds in the tournament. The loss cost them their grasp on one of the No. 1 seeds, but Duke's loss gives the Longhorns some more hope to reclaim one of the one-seeds. Ohio State, Kansas, Pittsburgh and BYU all have claims to one-seeds currently, with Duke holding a slight edge on Texas as well. If the Longhorns win the Big 12 conference tournament, it's likely they'll find themselves as a one-seed. 

Baylor's tournament chances are after the jump.

Baylor's win over the then-17th ranked Aggies was huge. The aforementioned Blogging the Bracket has the Bears in the 2011 NCAA Tournament following their win over A&M, on track for a 12 seed. Baylor and Michigan snuck in over the weekend at the expense of Boston College and Minnesota.

Still, the Bears are going to have to play well in the Big 12 conference tournament to earn a bid. The Bears also need to take care of business against the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Tuesday as well - they can't really afford any more bad losses.
