2.29 Championship Week Update

This year, Leap Day brings us the biggest day of Championship Week so far. We have five different conferences holding games today. We have quarterfinal rounds in three of the leagues and opening rounds in the other two. I'm not entirely sure how many people that the West Coast Conference is going to draw with their lone game of the day at a neutral site, but that's neither here nor there. The Ohio Valley conference also begins play today, with top two seeds Murray State and Tennessee State getting byes to the semifinals.

Let's hit the jump and we'll get to the list!
