Texas A&M vs. Oklahoma – Game Time, TV Channel, Announcers, Betting Line, Predictions

Texas A&M player in the crowd singing fight song.

Two former Big 12 rivals will square off in the Sweet 16 Thursday evening with an Elite Eight berth on the line. 

In case you missed it, the No. 3 seed Texas A&M Aggies, now of the Southeastern Conference, are in this game thanks to the largest comeback in the history of college basketball. Senior guards Alex Caruso (25 points, nine rebounds) and Danuel House (22 points, eight rebounds) spearheaded A&M's improbable rally.

Second-seeded Oklahoma, meanwhile, survived against No. 10 seed TCU, 85-81. Senior guard Buddy Hield was lights-out as usual, pouring in 36 points.

The winner of this matchup will face either fourth-seeded Duke or top-seeded Oregon for the right to go to the Final Four. 

Date: Thursday, March 24

Time: 7:37 p.m.

TV Channel: TBS

Location: Anaheim, California

Announcers: Verne Lundquist, Jim Spanarkel, Allie LaForce

Opening Betting Line: Oklahoma - 2

Prediction: On paper, this game projects to be an outstanding one. Both sides have veteran stars and dynamic backcourts. The Sooners have the best player (Hield), while the Aggies probably have a slight advantage in size and bench scoring. An A&M win would put the program in the Elite Eight for the first time in program history, while an OU victory would clinch the Sooners' first Elite Eight since 2009.

We're going to ride with Buddy Hield to keep Oklahoma's season going with another huge performance.
