    In the case that Utah, BYU, and Utah Valley all make it into the tournament…does UVU face Utah and BYU gets sent packing to California?

      That’s a distinct possibility. If Colorado/Colorado College make it, BYU might yet host or get a shorter trip.

        And possibly face the Utes in SLC in the round of 32? That’d be an exciting rematch.

        But let’s say Seattle wins the WAC and Utah Valley is out. If Utah gets a 4th seed but BYU finishes in the top 25, do they still face each other?

        I know it’s all very hypothetical, but interested in your take.

          I suspect if BYU ends up that high, the committee would probably do everything in its power to find Utah a suitable regional opponent other than BYU. If there’s not one though, it might be a case of Utah having to host BYU.
