NCAA Tournament 2012: Elite 8 Matchups, TV Schedule, Start Times & More

The 2012 NCAA Tournament is down to just eight teams and only three games separates these teams from claiming a national championship. We've already had some great games thus far and they will only continue to get better as teams fight for their lives with no room for error. The Elite 8 slate of the competition is scheduled to kickoff on Saturday afternoon. Here is the a schedule for all the action.

WEST REGION - Phoenix, AZ

Matchup: Louisville Cardinals (4) vs. Florida Gators (7)

Road To The Elite 8: Louisville knocked off Davidson in the second round, New Mexico in the third and dismantled Michigan State in the Sweet 16 on Thursday. Florida dominated Virginia and Norfolk State in their first two games, and led the entire way against Marquette earlier this week.

Tipoff Time: 4:30 p.m. ET / 1:30 p.m. PT

TV Coverage: CBS will broadcast the game live across the entire nation, with pre-game coverage starting 90 minutes before the game.

EAST REGION - Boston, MA

Matchup: Syracuse Orange (1) vs. Ohio St. Buckeyes (2)

Road To The Elite 8: Syracuse avoided the early upset against UNC-Ashville in the opening round before defeating Kansas State to advance to the Sweet 16. They knocked off Wisconsin at the buzzer on Thursday. Ohio State has defeated Loyola, Gonzaga and Cincinnati to get to this point.

Tipoff Time: 7:05 p.m. ET / 4:05 p.m. PT

TV Coverage: CBS will broadcast the action. Should the Louisville-Florida matchup run long or into overtime, they will likely delay the start until the conclusion of the earlier game.
