The 2019 NCAA Championship Game is here, as Virginia and Texas Tech have the chance to capture their first title in program history. It should be a great battle between two of the best defensive teams in the country.
Virginia survived in the Final Four after a miraculous finish against Auburn. Kyle Guy made three clutch free throws for the Cavaliers to seal the deal.
Texas Tech is coming off an impressive victory over Michigan State. Chris Beard led his team to the biggest win of the season even without a dominant performance from Jarrett Culver.
One key factor will be how the upperclassmen perform for each squad. Ty Jerome and Matt Mooney will play huge roles for their respective teams.
With the championship shaping up to be a terrific matchup, the panel of experts on CBS Sports released their predictions.
Steve Lappas believes the Red Raiders will cut down the nets, meanwhile Jon Rothstein and Wally Szczerbiak chose the Cavaliers.

Virginia is a slight favorite heading into the final game of the season, but it could come down to the wire.
CBS will broadcast the action from U.S. Bank Stadium.
