After an eventful start to March Madness, the Final Four in the Men’s Division 1 National Basketball Championship is finally set. After a crazy weekend upsets no one saw coming, all of our brackets are busted. Unless you somehow predicted all of these upsets, then…kudos to you. Michigan State Spartans, Texas Tech Red Raiders, Virginia Cavaliers and the Auburn Tigers are heading to Minnesota to fight for a spot in the Finals.
Auburn vs Virginia
The Auburn Tigers are having an amazing season and upset the #1 seed, North Carolina Tar Heels, last week. But, the Tigers weren’t done there. On Sunday, they knocked off the #2 seed, Kentucky Wildcats, in overtime. Talk about a heck of a game. Auburn is the lowest ranked team in the Final Four; but, they certainly will be giving the #1 seed Virginia a tough battle.
The Virginia Cavaliers have been a hot team all season and won’t be dying down anytime soon. If fact, they will be ending a 35 year drought as they are finally heading back to the Final Four for the first time since 1984. The Cavaliers are the last #1 seed remaining in this years’ March Madness. Do they have what it takes to win it all? Guess we have to wait to find out…
Virginia and Auburn are scheduled to play Saturday, April 6th on CBS at 6:09 pm.
Michigan State vs Texas Tech
Michigan State is still celebrating their huge 68-67 victory over the top ranked Duke Blue Devils on Sunday. As they should be. I mean, that game was a nail biter until the final buzzer. Coach Tom Izzo is heading to his eighth Final Four appearance, looking to obtain his third national title. The last title Michigan State won was in 2000.
No surprise for this year, we had another upset last week. The Texas Tech Red Raiders pulled off a huge win against #1 seed, Gonzaga, and are making their first final four appearance in school history. Talk about a wild card. The team is filled with multiple transfer students who all play together like they have known each other since youth league basketball. With the way this team has been playing, it will not be a surprise to see them in the Championship game.
Michigan State and Texas Tech will tip off Saturday, April 6th on CBS at 8:49 pm.
Who makes it to the big Championship game? We have to wait until Saturday night to find out, but for now we are talking a poll. Check out our TEPSBEST predictions below and share yours in the comments!
