And so, after a promising first round saw six ACC teams remaining in the field, Saturday promptly cut that number in half, raising some eyebrows and leaving many brackets busted. South Dakota and West Virginia vs. Bucknell come to mind, the Ducks win was never in doubt.

Even as the only double-digit seed to make the Sweet 16, No. 11 Xavier is hardly a surprise considering it spent most of the season ranked in the top 25.

It's just another facet to Trubisky's "interesting journey" - a rapid rise from quarterback yet to make a college start to a player being projected as a possible top-10 draft pick in the span of just eight months.
