The Elite Eight kicks off today. After two straight days of Sweet 16 action, and plenty of upsets, only eight teams remain.

Three lower-seeded teams won during the first round of Sweet 16 games on Thursday. Loyola-Chicago took down Nevada, Kansas State beat Kentucky and Florida State knocked off Gonzaga.

There was only one upset on Friday night as Texas Tech breezed past Purdue.

Tonight No. 11 Loyola-Chicago takes on No. 9 Kansas State, while No. 3 Michigan faces No. 9 Florida State.

Using its BPI metric, ESPN has released its predictions for the two contests.
