Should SU advance, it would play the winner of second-seeded Michigan State and 15th seeded Middle Tennessee. Fellow ACC team Virginia is the top seeded team in the region, which will hold its championship in Chicago.

It was one of the stranger Selection Sunday in recent memory, with the entire NCAA bracket being leaked online prior to the official show on CBS.
