The 2022 NCAA Tournament is here, as the full 68-teams field was announced on Selection Sunday. 

One of the most intriguing parts of the bracket reveal is finding out which bubble teams made the tournament, as well as who else received at-large bids from each conference. 

The 32 teams that win their respective conference tournament are awarded an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The remaining 36 teams that are selected receive at-large bids, and there’s always a team or two that may get snubbed by the selection committee. 

Usually, the major conferences such as the Big Ten, Big 12, SEC, ACC, Pac 12 and Big East receive the majority of the at-large bids, as they face more quality competition throughout the season and have more tournament-worthy teams than smaller conferences. 

Fans of these conferences love competing to see how many of their teams get into the tournament, and then how they fare once the games begin. 

Let’s take a look at this year’s bracket and how many teams from the Big Ten are in the NCAA Tournament:
