The brackets are locked. It's time to boogie.

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.

How to watch away from your TV

Stuck in traffic behind an accident? Trying to avoid eye contact with the homeless dude on the bus? That's why the NCAA March Madness Live app exists. You can stream all the games on-the-go right from your mobile device, so long as you're ok with watching your battery have its life sucked away before your eyes.

If you want to save your phone's battery, the March Madness Live website will be your best friend.
