Michigan State Spartans will play the Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens on Thursday as the Second Round of March Madness continues.

Today's game between the Michigan State Spartans and the Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens will start at 4.40 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on the TNT network, or online through free live stream by clicking here.

The March Madness 2014 Second Round will feature 16 games on Thursday starting just after noon, and will continue all the way through to the late hours tonight.

As well as the top seeded Florida taking to the court on Thursday, defending champions Louisville will also be in action, and over the next two days this should arguably be one of the best 48 hours of American sports in 2014.

The First Four Games took place over the past few days and saw the teams whittled down to the final 64. Of course the NCAA introduced the "First Four" in 2011 in an effort to expand the tournament even more.

The winners from Round One made it through to the traditional grouping of 64 teams. Some have criticized the First Four round, but others point out it was the lesser of two evils, as organizers were originally touting expanding the NCAA to 96 games.

The 64 teams have now been confirmed and have been divided into four different regions, with each region containing 16 teams. The Selection Committee has seeded each of the 16 teams in each region from 1 through 16 based on the teams' records, strength of schedule.

In this Second Round, the highest seeded teams are given the reward of facing teams that are theoretically supposed to be easier to beat – the lower seeded teams; so the No. 1 seeds face the No. 16 seeds, and the No. 2 seeds face the No. 15 seeds and so on.

On Sunday, the NCAA announced that Florida, Arizona, Virginia and Wichita State would be 2014's number one seeds.
