The second Elite Eight game of the evening is underway. It's shaping up to be an exciting finish.

Michigan, the No. 3 seed in the West Region, is in a tight battle with No. 9 seed Florida State. The Wolverines were a sizable favorite heading into this contest.

Neither team looked very good in the first half, though. Both teams played a little out of character.

After 20 minutes of play, it's Michigan 27, Florida State 26.

Who's going to take it home in the second half?

Here's ESPN's prediction:

Michigan has a 63.6 percent chance to win the game.

Here is ESPN's probability chart for FSU-Michigan.

The winner of this game moves on to the Final Four, where it'll play Loyola-Chicago. That game is set for next Saturday night.
