March Madness Schedule 2012: Elite 8 Gets Underway Saturday

Baylor fans are still probably on cloud nine after watching the Bears advance to the Elite 8 on Friday night, but they'll have to wait until Sunday to see the Bears take on the top-seeded Kentucky Wildcats. In the meantime, though, there are two Final Four tickets waiting to be punched on Saturday -- and both games are certainly worth watching for any basketball fan.

The West regional will be the first to conclude, as the No. 7 seed Florida Gators take on the No. 4 seed Louisville Cardinals in the only regional final not to feature a No. 1 seed. Instead, we're left with a mentor vs. student story, as Rick Pitino and Billy Donovan go head-to-head for the first time in the NCAA tournament. Tip off is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. CT.

The East regional will also conclude on Saturday night, as the top-seeded Syracuse Orange take on the No. 2 seed Ohio State Buckeyes. Tip off is scheduled for 6:05 p.m. CT.
