Two teams will punch their tickets to the Final Four this Saturday night. The action begins with No. 2 seed Villanova and No. 5 seed Houston in the South Region.

Houston really flexed its muscles in the Sweet 16, defeating No. 1 seed Arizona by 12 points. Kyler Edwards and Jamal Shead combined for 40 points.

Villanova, meanwhile, edged out Michigan by a final score of 63-55. Collin Gillespie hit a clutch 3-pointer late in the game to seal the deal for the Wildcats.

This matchup between Houston and Villanova will tip off at 6:09 p.m. ET on TBS. As of now, Houston is a 2.5-point favorite.

The second game on the schedule this Saturday features Arkansas and Duke.

Arkansas shocked the college basketball world on Thursday night, knocking off No. 1 seed Gonzaga. JD Notae led the charge with 21 points and six assists.

Duke had its hands full with Texas Tech in the Sweet 16, but Coach K's squad did just enough down the stretch to delay his retirement for at least another two days.

Tipoff for the Arkansas-Duke game is at 8:49 p.m. ET on TBS. It would be quite fitting for the Blue Devils to make the Final Four in Coach K's final season.
