The first two spots in the 2022 Final Four are up for grabs on Saturday as the Elite Eight begins with the first two regional finals of the weekend. The South Regional and West Regional are the two that will be decided tonight, and in both cases the No. 1 seed was eliminated in the Sweet 16.

That leaves No. 5 seed Houston to take on No. 2 seed Villanova in the South Regional at 6:09 p.m. ET on TBS, while No. 4 seed Arkansas will play No. 2 seed Duke at 8:49 p.m. on TBS. Houston’s defense has been so dominant recently that the Cougars are actually favored by two points against Villanova after taking out No. 1 seed Arizona on Thursday night.

Duke, meanwhile, will be looking for a repeat of the impeccable offensive showing that lifted it to a victory over hard-nosed Texas Tech in the Sweet 16. Arkansas employs a similar gritty defensive approach that will force the Blue Devils to be on their game once again if coach Mike Krzyzewski’s final season is going to reach the Final Four in New Orleans.

It’s been a crazy NCAA Tournament so far, and with the field dwindling by the day, the intensity is only increasing as the nation’s hottest teams battle it out to be the last one standing when a national champion is crowned on April 4.

Be sure to check in often as this story will update every single time the NCAA Tournament schedule is adjusted. Games will be aired on CBS, TNT, TBS and truTV — and as always, you can watch every game in the tourney via March Madness Live beginning Tuesday night with the First Four. All times ET
