How do 48 team tournaments work?
Read that all the Fall sports delayed to Spring will have 48 team tournaments, usually 32 autobids and 16 at large.

How does it work? Do 16 teams get a bye (or equivalently, 32 teams have to do a play-in round)? Or do they go 48-24-12-6-3 and then do some kind of round robin at the end?

Good question. Looks like it was 32 teams in the first round back in the "good ole days".
