No. 4 Auburn takes on No. 5 Clemson in a second-round game in the Midwest Region on Sunday. The game will be played at Viejas Arena in San Diego.

Preview
: No. 4 Auburn survived No. 13 College of Charleston 62-58 on Friday night. It wasn't a pretty game, but it was effective.

Clemson, meanwhile, was a trendy pick to be upset by No. 12 seed New Mexico State. The Tigers took care of business though, winning 79-68.

These two teams have met the past two seasons in football, with Clemson getting the better of Auburn. We'll see how that translates to the hardwood.

Date: Sunday, March 18th

Time: 7:10 p.m. ET

TV Channel: TBS

Location: Viejas Arena in San Diego, Ca.

Announcers: Carter Blackburn, Debbie Antonelli, and John Schriffen

Opening Betting Line: Auburn -1.5, per 5Dimes.

Prediction: These are two teams trying to do the same thing: get to the Sweet Sixteen for the first time in a long time. Auburn hasn't been since 2003, while Clemson hasn't been since 1997.

This one should be tight between two physical, athletic teams. We like the Tigers: Clemson that is.
