Jim Harbaugh is pumped.

Michigan's football coach just watched his school's men's basketball team lock up a spot in the Final Four. The Wolverines, the No. 3 seed in the West Region, beat No. 9 seed Florida State in the Elite Eight on Saturday night.

John Beilein's team is set to play No. 11 seed Loyola-Chicago in the Final Four next Saturday night. A spot in the national title game is on the line.

Harbaugh tweeted out a message for the Wolverines following tonight's game.

"Congratulations on the big win & trip to the Final Four! Fun to watch our team, expertly coached, extremely talented & great Team chemistry! Familiar territory for Michigan teams coached by John Beilein. Proud of the way the fans & the team represented our great university," he wrote.

Here's the full tweet:

Michigan and Loyola are set to tip off in San Antonio next Saturday night.

A game time has yet to be set. It will be televised on TBS.

The winner will play either Duke, Kansas, Villanova or Texas Tech. Those four teams are playing in the Elite Eight on Sunday.
