NCAA Tournament games will be televised on CBS today. Unfortunately, they won't be 2020 NCAA Tournament games, but we'll take what we can get.

CBS announced earlier this week plans to air classic NCAA Tournament games over the next two weeks in the wake of the 2020 tournament getting canceled due to the coronavirus.

Three classic games aired on Saturday and three more classic contests will be televised on CBS this afternoon. Three of the greatest national championship games in tournament history will be aired today.

The 2008 Kansas vs. Memphis game will air at noon E.T., followed by the 2019 Virginia-Texas Tech game at 2 p.m. E.T. and the 2016 Villanova-North Carolina contest at 4 p.m. E.T.

All three national title contests had thrilling finishes.

Three more games will air next weekend, too:

Nothing beats live NCAA Tournament action, but old, classic contests are certainly better than nothing. We'll be tuning in at noon E.T. today.
