West Virginia’s win over then-No. 2 Ohio State is propelling the Mountaineers up in the latest Bracketology projections, including a top seed in one forecast.

CBS’s Jerry Palm is even extremely bullish on the Mountaineers. In his latest Bracketology projections, Palm has WVU slotted as the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region. CBS has WVU opening the tournament against 16th seed Radford. Palm has Indiana (8) and Marquette (9) in the Mountaineers pod

WVU is a No. 3 seed in the East Region in ESPN’s latest Bracketology projection. ESPN’s Joe Lunardi has the Mountaineers as the third seed in the East, with WVU facing 14-seed Colgate in the Cleveland pod. Lundardi has Wichita State as the six seed in the Cleveland pod, setting up a possible Cancun Challenge championship game rematch between WVU and the Shockers in the second round

The Fansided Busting Brackets forecast is higher on the Mountaineers than ESPN. Busting Brackets also has WVU in the East Region, but as the No. 2 seed. Fansided projects WVU opening the tournament with 15th-seeded UC Irvine with Arizona (No. 7) and Temple (No. 10) in the pod with WVU

West Virginia has never been a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The highest seeding the Mountaineers have ever had is the No. 2 seed in the East Region of the 2010 NCAA Tournament. WVU went to the Final Four that season.
