A major upset is brewing in the fourth game of the NCAA Tournament's second round. Here's the latest.

Tennessee, the No. 3 seed in the South Region, is taking on No. 11 seed Loyola-Chicago. The Ramblers upset No. 6 seed Miami in the first round on Thursday.

The Vols are in trouble.

Tennessee is trailing Loyola, 29-25, at halftime.

The Vols are letting the Ramblers dictate the pace through 20 minutes. That's going to have to change for an upset to not occur.

The winner of this game will move on to the Sweet 16, where the winner of Cincinnati-Nevada awaits.

That game will be played on Thursday or Friday night. An official game time and TV channel will come out later this weekend.

Tennessee and Loyola are playing on TNT.

The second half should begin momentarily.
