Bracketology 2012: Florida, Florida State Earn Slots

ESPN's Joe Lunardi has released his latest edition of Bracketology and two Florida teams are represented.

The Florida Gators earn a No. 4 seed in the West Region in Lunardi's latest bracket, and are picked to face No. 13 seed Long Beach State in Portland in the first round. The top four seeds in the Gators' region are No. 1 Ohio State, No. 2 Baylor and No. 3 Georgetown. Gonzaga (No. 5), undefeated Murray State (No. 6) and Purdue (No. 7) are among the other big names expected to head west.

Florida State also edges its way into the bracket, but barely. Lunardi picks the Seminoles to play in a First Four game against Xavier for a No. 12 seed and the right to play No. 5 seed Michigan in the South Region. The top seeds in that region are No. 1 North Carolina, No. 2 Indiana, No. 3 Kansas and No. 4 Louisville. Lunardi ranks Florida State last in his "Last Four In" category, so the Seminoles are precariously on the bubble at this point.
