What March Madness games are on today? Time, TV channel, live stream for men’s NCAA tournament Elite Eight

We’re down to eight teams in the men’s NCAA tournament, and the pressure is ratcheted all the way up.

After a relatively chalky second round, the upsets came fast and furious in the Sweet Sixteen. The West region devolved into chaos Thursday, as 6-seed Clemson took down 2-seed Arizona before No. 4 Alabama escaped with a two-point victory against No. 1 North Carolina.

The biggest upset by seeding came Friday, when 11-seeded North Carolina State beat 2-seeded Marquette 67-58. That was followed by another classic in the South region as Duke narrowly beat Houston to set us up with eight teams playing their best ball at the perfect time.

Given the concentration of the upsets in the West and South regions, this year’s Elite Eight games each fit one of two categories: giants clashing or lower-seeded teams looking to prolong their runs. All that’s left to do is tip the games off and see who will be advancing to Phoenix for the Final Four.
