Florida Atlantic Owls

Elite Owls

Would you expect anything else out of the East region?

The Florida Atlantic Owls became the 7th 9-seed to reach the Elite 8, joining 1979 Penn, 1981 St. Joseph’s, 1994 Boston College, 2013 Wichita State, 2018 Kansas State and Florida State. They are also the 4th team since the field expanded in 1985 to reach the Elite 8 after entering the year with no NCAA Tournament wins.

Not many people had this pick. Only three brackets had Florida Atlantic advancing to the Elite 8.

Brian Tulk who moved from 230th place to start the day to 38th overall.

Garrett Tredway who went from 181st place to 71st.

Troy Trussell who moved from 406th place to 274.

Not a single person in the pool has FAU going to the Final Four, though.

The Tennessee loss was brutal for Survivor. 7 of 12 people had the Volunteers winning tonight and are now out.
