March Madness games today, March 26
No. 2 Villanova vs. No. 5 Houston — 6:09 p.m. ET — TBS
No. 2 Duke vs. No. 4 Arkansas — 8:49 p.m. ET — TBS
The first game of Saturday night will be between the Villanova Wildcats and the Houston Cougars. Villanova ended the hopes and dreams of the No. 11 Michigan Wolverines, defeating them 63-55 on Thursday night. But it was Houston who picked up one of the biggest wins of March 24, as they sent the No. 1 seed Arizona Wildcats home with a 72-60 win.
This game will be followed by the Duke Blue Devils taking on the Arkansas Razorbacks. The Blue Devils look to advance to their first Final Four appearance in 2015 and to help send out head coach Mike Krzyzewski into retirement with his sixth national championship. But standing in their way are the Razorbacks, who eliminated the No. 1 Gonzaga Bulldogs with a 74-68 victory.
Four teams enter Saturday night, but only two will advance to the Final Four in New Orleans, La.
