It’s Selection Sunday! And if your favorite team is on the bubble for the NCAA tournament, today may as well be a holiday.

After defeating #9 LSU for the second time on Friday, Florida no longer appears to be on the bubble, but firmly in the tournament.

But where will Florida play and what seed will these Gators attain?

Here’s a quick rundown of what some of the prognosticators have predicted in anticipation of tonight’s 6:00 PM (EST) Selection Show on CBS.

ESPN:

ESPN has Florida as the #10 seed in the Midwest Region with a matchup against #7 Louisville out of the ACC. That game would tip-off in Columbus, Ohio.

USA Today:

USA Today projects the Gators as the #11 seed in the East Region. Florida would face defending National Champions Villanova in the opening round in Hartford, CT.

CBS Sports:

CBS Sports sees Florida making the tournament as the #10 seed in the West Region. Like ESPN, CBS has Florida set to face Louisville.

Sports Illustrated:

SI.com has Florida as the #10 seed in the Midwest with a date against #7 seed Cincinnati. This matchup would give Cincy a nice home court advantage with Columbus being the host site.

_________

We will know Florida’s fate in just a few hours. A #10 seed sounds intriguing because Jacksonville is a host site for both the South and West brackets for the 7-10 game.

Where would you like to see Florida play and who do you want them to take on in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament?
