A wise man once said that college basketball is “where the unexpected becomes the ordinary.” We disagree. In fact, each of us editors here at Mid-Major Madness can say with 100 percent confidence that we know every mid-major team that will reach the NCAA Tournament. We’ve laid out a nifty table below to show you our picks. You might notice some differences in opinion. That’s because the other editors here are wrong and I am right. It happens sometimes!

There’s a lot of agreement here as well. For example, we promise you that Vermont, VCU, Gonzaga, South Alabama, and New Mexico State will all win their conference tournaments and that Saint Mary’s and Davidson will both be at-large selections. Oh, and Iona will dance too, but you already knew that. Death, taxes, Cluess, etc.

So, without further ado, here are all the automatic bids that will be handed out in 2020 from mid-major conferences. Scroll down for all the at-large teams as well.
