March Madness, the most magical time of the year, is finally upon us again. The Ducks are dancing for the third straight year and face Oklahoma State on Friday for the second time in three years. But today, we get to sit back and watch the madness unfold.
Notre Dame and Northeastern open up today's schedule of 16 games at 9:15 a.m. PT on CBS. There are some intriguing match-ups today, including Butler/Texas, SMU/UCLA and Utah/SF Austin just to name a few.
Below is your full schedule for the day's action, including what network the games are on. And in case you were wondering, no, I don't know what channel truTV is. Nobody knows, it's one of America's greatest unsolved mysteries.
