There are only three more days until February, and that means that March Madness is quickly approaching.

ESPN bracketology expert Joe Lunardi released his latest NCAA Tournament predictions Tuesday, with No. 15 Maryland men’s basketball as the fourth seeded team in the West region.

Of course, a lot is due to change between now and Selection Sunday, but Lunardi currently has the Terps facing Stephen F. Austin — yes, the team that upset then-No. 1 Duke — in the first round in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Lunardi has a whopping 11 other Big Ten teams making the field, including No. 14 Michigan State (3-seed), No. 18 Iowa (6-seed), No. 19 Illinois (6-seed), No. 24 Penn State (6-seed), No. 25 Rutgers (7-seed), Wisconsin (7-seed), Indiana (8-seed), Ohio State (8-seed), Michigan (9-seed), Purdue (10-seed) and Minnesota (11-seed). No other conference has more than five teams dancing.

See how the rest of his bracket shapes out:
