2015 NCAA Tournament (Thursday, March 19, 12:15/11:15c, CBS)

Let the bracket busting begin! The NCAA Tournament, aka March Madness, aka the crown jewel of sports gambling, officially kicks off with the round of 64 and a face off between No. 3 ranked Notre Dame and No. 14 ranked Northeastern.

The 16 televised games extend well into the evening, but a few key matchups to keep an eye on include Kentucky’s first tip off at 9:40/8:40c on CBS. The Wildcats are coming off an undefeated regular season and are favored to make history by going 40-0 and taking home the championship. Upsets could also be brewing, with many pundits predicting No. 12 SFA taking down No. 5 Utah during their 7:27/6:27c game airing on truTV. Regardless of the outcomes, the first day of the tournament always promises to be a heart-pounding display with plenty of buzzer-beaters and infectious underdog grit.
