NCAA Bracket 2019: Auburn a 5 seed in Midwest Region, playing New Mexico State

This is rough.

NCAA Basketball: SEC Conference Tournament-Tennessee vs Auburn Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

The 2019 SEC Tournament champion Auburn Tigers will be heading out west as a 5-seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Bruce Pearl’s squad will be facing the New Mexico State Aggies Thursday in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The Aggies went an impressive 30-4 this season, and the Tigers may have their hands full, especially considering the travel and time change, both of which will impact New Mexico State less.
