    Final Four schedule, game times and TV channels for the 2016 NCAA Tournament.


    The field of 68 has been whittled down to just four teams over the course of the last two and a half weeks. The roller coaster ride that is the NCAA Tournament has not disappointed, and luckily we still have three more games to go.

    North Carolina, Oklahoma, Syracuse and Villanova each navigated their respective regions to advance to the Final Four in Houston, Tex. Now just one game stands between each and a shot at the national championship.

    North Carolina is the big dog heading to Houston. The 1-seeded Tar Heels rolled their first four opponents, beating all by double digits, en route to the program’s 19th Final Four.

    Oklahoma has ridden the nation’s best player, Buddy Hield, to the Sooners’ fifth Final Four appearance in program history and first since 2002.

    Syracuse, which snuck in as a 10-seed, was supposed to be handed an early exit from the NCAA Tournament. But here the Orange are, playing in the program’s sixth Final Four and fourth in the past 20 years.

    Villanova, behind balanced play and the sharpshooting of Ryan Arcidiacono, took down the No. 1-overall seed Kansas Jayhawks to secure the Wildcats’ fifth Final Four appearance. It’s also the second under head coach Jay Wright, who silenced the critics this March.

    North Carolina will face Syracuse, and Oklahoma will take on Villanova. Below is the complete Final Four schedule, including game times and TV channels.

    1 North Carolina vs. 10 Syracuse

    Day: Saturday, April 2
    Location: Houston
    Scheduled Game Time: 8:49 p.m. ET
    TV Channel: TBS

    North Carolina is the lone No. 1 seed in the Final Four. The Tar Heels have flexed their muscles all the way to Houston, and will enter as the favorite to win the title. Waiting, however, is a Syracuse team that just keeps finding a way to get it done on the back of Jim Boeheim’s famed zone defense. North Carolina is 2-0 against Cuse this year.

    2 Oklahoma vs. 2 Villanova

    Day: Saturday, April 2
    Location: Houston
    Scheduled Game Time: 6:09 p.m. ET
    TV Channel: TBS

    What more can be said about Buddy Hield? He’s unstoppable. But Oklahoma isn’t nearly as balanced as Villanova. The Wildcats, led by Ryan Arcidiacono and Daniel Ochefu, get contributions inside and out from a bevy of players. This will be the second matchup of the year for these two squads. Oklahoma took the first without hardly breaking a sweat, winning 78-55.
