Welcome to Elite Eight Sunday, where the last two members of the Final Four will be determined. The Kentucky Wildcats and Wisconsin Badgers are on one half of the bracket, and today, we’ll find out who will be on the other. Here are your games and times:
|Michigan St. vs. Louisville||02:20:00 PM||Syracuse, NY||Carrier Dome|
|Gonzaga vs. Duke||05:05:00 PM||Houston, TX||NRG Stadium|

The cool thing about this is that one or both of Kentucky’s most detested rivals could wind up on the other side of the bracket, setting up a matchup between either Louisville or Duke if Kentucky manages to defeat Wisconsin. That would likely produce one of the most watched NCAA Tournament games in history.
I personally hope to see Gonzaga finally get there. I’d love to see Kyle Wiltjer lead his squad to the Final Four. That would be really cool for the former Kentucky player. But it will be a big challenge for the Zags to overcome the Blue Devils.
As far as Michigan State and Louisville are concerned, either one of these provide a tasty matchup if circumstances dictate a matchup with Kentucky. We have lots of history with Michigan State, and we owe them more than one. I don’t need to say a word about the Cardinals.
Enjoy the games.
