The No. 1 seed Kansas Jayhawks are set to take on the No. 2 Duke Blue Devils. The game will be played in Omaha on Sunday, March 25.

Preview: The Midwest Region has, somehow, gone chalk for its regional final contest. That's pretty surprising considering what's happened elsewhere in the NCAA Tournament.

Kansas enters the game coming off a nice win against a hot Clemson team. The Jayhawks led for basically the entire contest and held off the Tigers late.

Duke, meanwhile, got past a Syracuse team that upset No. 3 seed Michigan State. The Blue Devils were able to execute against the vaunted zone defense.

Sunday is going to be fun.

Date: March 25

Time: 5:05 p.m. E.T.

TV Channel: CBS

Location: Omaha, Neb.

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

Opening Betting Line: TBD

Prediction: Kansas has looked very much like a Final Four contender so far this tournament and they have the guard play to get there.

Duke, though, might have too much to handle up front, especially with the Jayhawks having some players battling through injuries down low.

We like the Blue Devils in a close one.

Duke wins.
