Loyola-Chicago is one of the major story lines of the 2018 NCAA Tournament.

The Ramblers have beaten two Power 5 opponents to advance to the Sweet 16. They are one win away from an Elite Eight berth as a No. 11 seed.

At least one college hoops writer is picking them to go even farther.

CBS Sports' Matt Norlander released his updated picks from the Sweet 16 on today. He has the Ramblers making it all the way to the final and losing to Purdue.

It would be the first time Loyola has made the national final since it won it all in 1963.

Matt Norlander's NCAA bracket has Loyola Chicago in the title game.

Loyola-Chicago and Nevada will play in the Sweet 16 on Thursday night.
