The best game of the four Sweet 16 games taking place tonight might be the one between No. 3 Michigan and No. 7 Texas A&M. The Wolverines and the Aggies just tipped off.

Texas A&M has looked incredibly good so far this tournament, blowing out North Carolina in the second round on Sunday.

Michigan, meanwhile, has looked OK, but showed at the Big Ten Tournament what it is capable of.

Tonight's game is taking place at Staples Center in Los Angeles. One team has a clear crowd advantage.

It's Michigan.

This is somewhat surprising, considering Texas A&M fans are probably really hungry for some NCAA Tournament success, but the Wolverines' massive alumni base cannot be underestimated.

Reporters at the game say it's clear Michigan has the advantage.

Michigan and Texas A&M are playing on TBS.

The winner of the game moves on to the Elite Eight, where it'll face the winner of the game between Gonzaga and Florida State.
