Kansas vs. Villanova - Game Time, TV Channel, Announcers, Betting Line, Prediction

Neither Kansas nor Villanova faced much of a test in the second half of their Sweet 16 games Thursday night, with the Jayhawks and the Wildcats both comfortably winning by double-digits. 

Hopefully for us, Saturday's game is better. 

The No. 1-seeded Jayhawks and No. 2-seeded Wildcats are set to square off in the Elite Eight in Louisville, Ky. with a spot in the Final Four on the line. 

Game Time: Saturday, 8:49 p.m. E.T.

TV Channel: CBS

Announcers: Jim Nantz, Bill Raftery, Grant Hill, Tracy Wolfson

Betting Line: TBD

Prediction: Kansas gets back to the Final Four. 

Villanova probably has the advantage in the backcourt, but the Jayhawks' possess a significant matchup problem in Perry Ellis and have a deeper bench. 

Bill Self's team didn't even play that well for a half against talented Maryland, but KU's defense was superb and keep them in the game before the offense could take over. 

Kansas wins, 85-79.
