Monday marks the final day of the first weekend of March Madness. After a whacky Round of 64, we saw eight teams punch their ticket to the Sweet Sixteen on Sunday. Now, there’s only the remaining eight games to set the rest of the field.
No team is safe either.
Just yesterday, we saw No. 8-seed Loyola Chicago pull the upset on No. 1-seed Illinois. Plus we saw a No. 11-seed Illinois beat a No. 3-seed West Virginia, a No. 15-seed Oral Roberts beat a No. 7-seed Florida and a No. 12-seed Oregon State beat a No. 4-seed Oklahoma State.
No. 2-seed Houston dodged a close one (63-60) against a No. 10-seed Rutgers too.
This has been a wild tournament so far, and Monday’s matchups could provide even more madness. In order to make things as easy as possible for OutKick readers, we’ve provided a quick game schedule for Saturday, which includes start time, TV channel and current betting lines, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
