No Northwestern? No problem. Here's how to watch today's NCAA Tournament games.

Shocker. Northwestern's season has been done for a while, but that doesn't mean we all still don't love some good ol' college hoops. Four games are featured today, including one Big Ten powerhouse and another team everyone loves to hate. Come join us here.

GAME ONE: (7) Wichita State vs. (3) Notre Dame

Cleveland, Ohio | 7:15 ET | CBS | March Madness Live

The Shockers, coming off a big win over in-state rival Kansas in the Round of 32, are two-point favorites. And they should be the favorites in your heart as well. Remember, the Wildcats clipped the Irish on the field in the fall but there's no reason to show mercy. Plus, why wouldn't you root for the scariest mascot in the field?

GAME TWO: (4) North Carolina vs. (1) Wisconsin

Los Angeles, California | 7:47 ET | TBS | March Madness Live

The Big Ten regular season and conference tournament champs are six-point favorites over the Tar Heels. UNC may have the size to match up with the Badgers down low, but Marcus Paige and co. may not have enough offensive firepower to take out the darlings of the upper Midwest.

GAME THREE: (5) West Virginia vs. (1) Kentucky

Cleveland, Ohio | 9:45 ET | CBS | March Madness Live

Can West Virginia's frenetic pace bother Kentucky? Probably not. But the 13.5-point spread could make things interesting.

GAME FOUR: (6) Xavier vs. (2) Arizona

Los Angeles, California | 10:17 ET | TBS | March Madness Live

Favored by 10.5 points coming off an impressive win over Ohio State, Arizona looks poised to advance to the Elite Eight. But Xavier is quietly playing well, looking to knock off Sean Miller, the Musketeer's former head coach.
