After another fun Saturday in SEC basketball, there were two teams that benefited most from their big wins.
Alabama and Texas A&M both took a step forward in the newest bracket projection from USA Today bracketology Shelby Mast following their victories over top 25 opponents.
The Crimson Tide jumped up to a No. 6 seed after blowing out Tennessee, while the Aggies kept their momentum going to move to the 5-line with a convincing win over Kentucky.
