AUBURN, Ala. – There are only six days until Selection Sunday, six days before Auburn will hear its name called as a part of the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2003.

For the players and coaches, their focus is squarely on the SEC tournament where the Tigers will await the winner of Alabama and Texas A&M in Friday’s first quarterfinal game. But for the fans, it’s never too early to look ahead and see where some experts think the SEC regular-season champions might be seeded or who they might face in the Big Dance.
