The Tipoff Time For Tonight's National Title Game Is Crazy Late

Villanova player comes down from dunk against Kansas.

One game remains in the 2018 NCAA Tournament.

Tonight, we'll get No. 1 seed Villanova against No. 3 seed Michigan. Both teams are, obviously, playing extremely well heading into the contest.

The Wildcats blew out Kansas in their national semifinal contest on Saturday night. Jay Wright's team was hot from the 3-point line as you can be.

The Wolverines, meanwhile, rallied from a double-digit deficit against Loyola-Chicago. John Beilein's team ended up winning comfortably down the stretch.

In about 12 hours, the two teams are going to meet at the Alamodome in San Antonio, playing for it all. The TV channel and tipoff time have been set.

TV channel: TBS

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

Tipoff time: 9:20 p.m. E.T.

Yes, you read that correctly. The national title game will tip off after 9 p.m. E.T. This is nothing new - it's been this way for years - but still, it's tough to handle for many.

Make sure to get some caffeine in you before the game. It's going to be a late one.
