The Oregon Ducks are a lock to be in the NCAA Tournament this season, but fans will have to wait until the NCAA Selection Show to find out Oregon's fate. To get a preview of what Oregon may be in store for, ATQ took a look at five different bracket projections. While three of those projections penciled in the Ducks as an 8 seed, they were as high as 7th in one bracket, and as low at 10th in another. Here's a look:

Where the Ducks are projected, it's tough to make a big run because you have to face really high seeds the first weekend. Being a 12 seed as Oregon was last year, while making the chances of winning a single game less likely, makes stringing together a few wins and getting out of the first weekend more manageable. Oregon will face a tough task to get out of the first weekend.

All of the projections agree on who gets into the tournament from the Pac-12: Arizona, UCLA, Oregon, Colorado, Arizona State and Stanford are in. Cal is out.

All will be unveiled during the NCAA Selection Show, 3:00 p.m. PT on CBS.
