We’re down to just sixteen teams in the 2017 NCAA Tournament, and as always, there were plenty of unexpected upsets along the way. This might surprise you given my wealth of college basketball knowledge, but I was not one of these lucky 18 souls.
Over 18.7 million brackets were entered in ESPN Tournament Challenge.
Only 18 picked all 16 Sweet 16 teams correctly.

Even if your bracket is busted like mine, we’re still blessed with plenty of intriguing matchups as a consolation prize. From the track meet that’s sure to take place between Kentucky and UCLA, to the defensive slugfest of Wisconsin vs. Florida, to the tournament’s last double-digit seed trying to keep their Cinderella run alive in Xavier vs. Arizona, there will be no shortage of drama in these games.
To make sure that you can follow along with all of the action, here’s an updated bracket, dates, game times, and TV channels for the Sweet Sixteen round.
