Florida Gators vs Michigan Wolverines takes place in the NCAA 2013 Elite 8 round on Sunday in one of two March Madness games scheduled for today. The game will tip off at 2.20 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
This should be a very tight game between No. 3 seeded Gators and No. 4 seeded Wolverines. Both have been ranked near the top of the Top 25 polls throughout the season and both were expecting to get to this stage of the tournament.
However, now the business end of the NCAA 2013 begins and every game should be a tight and hard fought game between the best teams in the nation.
Some have claimed that the Gators are the best team in the nation as they have excellence at both ends of the court, however, they have been struggling to close out games at the end of the second halves recently. They can ill afford any lapses in concentration here now, and if they do then the Wolverines will likely pounce.
Florida boast one of the best rosters in the competition as they have strength and depth all the way to the bench. Although they do not boast any individual super stars, they are one of the best "teams."
Meanwhile the Wolverines will be excited to just be here after a huge scare in the Sweet 16 round. They were 10 points down to Kansas at one point but came back fiercely to win the game and make it through to the Elite 8. Trey Burke was the star of the comeback, helping the team to force overtime after a frantic finale in the final two minutes. Michigan eventually won in the extra session.
Florida Gators vs Michigan Wolverines is scheduled to tip off at 2.20 p.m. ET from the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas and can be watched on TV on the CBS network. Alternatively the game can be watched online through free live stream by clicking here.
