March Madness Schedule 2012: Baylor Among Last Eight Teams Standing

After a thrilling Sweet 16, we're down to the Elite Eight. Four teams will punch their ticket to the Final Four on Saturday night, though Baylor fans will have to wait another day to see the third-seeded Bears take on the top-seeded Wildcats of Kentucky.

On Saturday, the West regional final will be the first to come to a close as the No. 7 seed Florida Gators take on the No. 4 seed Louisville Cardinals. Perhaps the most intriguing part of this game is the relationship between the two head coaches, as Rick Pitinio coached Billy Donovan in both college and the NBA, before taking Donovan on as an assistant at Kentucky. Tip off between Louisville and Florida is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. CT on CBS.

The East regional will also finish on Saturday, as the No. 2 seed Ohio State Buckeyes take on the top-seeded Syracuse Orange. The East regional is one of two regionals, along with the Midwest, where the top two seeds will face off for a chance to head to the Final Four. Tip off between Syracuse and Ohio State is scheduled for 6:05 p.m. CT on CBS.
