Bracketbuster TV Game Predictions

Folks, I don't know how accurate these will turn out to be (plus I haven't verified fully that these teams have not played each other yet).  But based on the list of home and away teams, RPI ratings, and travel considerations, these are my best guesses.

Utah State vs. St Mary's
Cleveland State vs ODU
Missouri State vs Valpo
George Mason vs Wichita State
VCU vs Northern Iowa
Kent State vs Drexel
Hofstra vs Charleston
Maine vs Fairfield
Iona vs James Madison
Vermont vs Wright State
Ball State vs Indiana State

I have been thinking for a while that Hofstra might play Fairfield, but that would mean that Maine might have to travel to Charleston.   My guess is the Bracketbuster selection committee will try to play up the first place MAAC vs. the first place America East.   Then you can market the Hofstra - Charleston game as a battle of two of the best scorers in the country (Charles Jenkins vs. Andrew Goudelock).

We'll find out how accurate these are tonight at 6:30 PM on ESPNU.
