The 2019 NCAA Tournament has technically been going on for two days already, but Thursday afternoon, the 64-team bracket tips off. Let’s take a look at how fans can watch the first game – Louisville vs. Minnesota – online.
The first game of the day features the No. 7 Louisville Cardinals against the No. 10 Minnesota Golden Gophers at 12:15 PM ET. The game is scheduled to air on CBS. Right now, Louisville is a 5.5-point favorite.
If you’re stuck at work and can’t turn on the television, you should still be able to watch it online. The NCAA’s website allows users to stream the game live.

By the end of the weekend, we’ll be down to just 16 teams.
