Defending champions No. 4 seeds Louisville Cardinals will play No. 5 seeds Saint Louis Billikens on Saturday as March Madness 2014 continues with the first half of Third Round games taking place today. The NCAA 2014 tournament has seen 64 reduced to 32 teams in just two days, and on Saturday eight games will take place as teams look to book their place in the Sweet 16 Round.
Today's game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Saint Louis Billikens is a mouthwatering match up and is one of the games of the day, as the defending champs look to navigate their way into the Sweet 16 Round. The game will start at 2.45 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on the CBS network, or online through free live stream by clicking here. A full schedule on Saturday's March Madness 2014 Third Round games can be seen below, including how to watch each game on TV, and which network each game is being featured on.
Today, four games will take place on CBS, including the opening game of Florida against Pittsburgh. That opening match up will be followed by a game between defending champions, No. 4 seeds Louisville, who are playing No. 5 seeds Saint Louis in a massive Midwest Region clash.
That game should get started at about 2.45 p.m. ET, but that's only an approximate time, and depends on the time the Florida game finishes. Organizers have said that the second game will start about 30 minutes after the first concludes.
In the late afternoon on CBS, games between No. 2 seeds Michigan and No. 7 seeds Texas, as well as No. 2 seeds Wisconsin and No. 7 seeds Oregon take place at 5.15 p.m. ET and 7.45 p.m. ET respectively.
On the TBS network there will be two match ups on Saturday; at 7.10 p.m. ET, No. 3 seeds Syracuse will look to progress against No. 11 seeds Dayton in the South Region. That will be followed at about 9.40 p.m. ET with No. 2 seeds Villanova against No. 7 seeds Connecticut in an East Region match up.
On TNT at 6:10 p.m. ET, No. 4 seeds San Diego State will take on No. 12 seeds North Dakota State in the West Region. That game will be followed at 8:40 p.m. ET with a match featuring No. 4 seeds Michigan State and No. 12 seeds Harvard.
