AZ Desert Swarm Bracketology debut: Arizona is a 5 seed

First ever bracketology! Where are Arizona and the rest of the Pac-12?

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Wildcats are winners of five straight and are climbing their way up the bracket ranks, according to most of the bracket experts.

On that note, Arizona Desert Swarm is throwing their hat in the bracket expert ring.

Our inaugural 2016 bracketology:

I've got Arizona as a 5-seed to kick things off, but they're continuing to ascend as they have taken a share of the lead in the parody-filled Pac-12.

There are six Pac-12 teams in the field as of now. Washington finds themselves on the outside looking in after a rough week and a slide down the Pac-12 standings.

The last four in are all the "First Four" participants: Cincinnati, St. Mary's, Texas Tech and Vanderbilt, in that order.

First four out: Alabama, Washington, Seton Hall, Butler.

Bracket Matrix's latest put us right in line with their projection, as they have Arizona as the second-highest 5-seed, averaging 79 bracket projections.

In other bracketology news, despite sweeping UCLA and USC this past weekend, ESPN's Joe Lunardi's latest bracketology has Arizona falling to a 6-seed. Lunardi has six Pac-12 teams in the field, with Washington and Oregon State in his eight teams just on the outside.

We'll be rolling out a new bracket projection each Monday and every day of Championship Tournament week, leading up to Selection Sunday, so check back for all of your March Madness needs.
