Drake and Loyola Chicago look to meet for a MVC title rubber match amid breakout seasons.

Arch Madness is officially back and it’s better than ever. One of the most entertaining league tourneys every year, the prominent mid-major conference features two primary contenders and a handful of squads looking to crash the dance.

Drake and Loyola Chicago lead the way and should expect to see their names called on Selection Sunday barring a collapse on Friday. Don’t count this possibility out, though. Last year’s top two seeds, Northern Iowa and Loyola Chicago, both lost their quarterfinals matchups and opened up the bracket. Could we see chaos unfold once again this year?
