On Sunday, 68 teams will find out their 2017 NCAA tournament fate during the bracket reveal.

Though the Selection Show has turned into a painfully drawn-out affair (though this year’s show is only 90 minutes, compared to last year’s two-hour event), it’s undoubtedly exciting to see what bubble teams can stop sweating, what mid majors are in the best position to ruin brackets and what stands in the way between the favorites and a trip to Phoenix.

Essentially, Selection Sunday marks the beginning of what is one of the best weeks in sports.

So, here’s everything you need to know to get ready for the uncovering of the 2017 bracket:
