2016 NCAA Tournament TV schedule: Sweet 16, game times and TV channels

Everything to get setup to watch all tonight's awesome NCAA Tournament action.

Maybe we'll get some games that aren't double-digit blows out tonight, shall we?

After yesterday's one sided affairs, the NCAA Tournament is back at it once again tonight, with the Sweet 16 concluding with another strong four-game slate. This time, we'll determine the matchups for the Midwest and East regional finals.

First up in the Midwest, No. 1 Virginia tries to get off the schneid against Steve Prohm and the No. 4 seeded Iowa State Cyclones, who look to try and avenge some recent tournament frustrations of their own. Though Virginia will try to get the 'Clones to play their game, Iowa State has more than enough horse power to potentially make this one interesting.

After their affair, the tournament's two lone remaining double digit seeds do battle with tenth seeded Syracuse going against perennial underdog darling No. 11 Gonzaga. It's hard to call either of these teams Cinderellas, though many felt 'Cuse had no business making the Big Dance in the first place.

Elsewhere, No. 6 Notre Dame goes toe-to-toe against Wisconsin in a Midwestern matchup made for the East regional. The Fighting Irish go against surprise first season head coach Greg Gard and the Badgers, last year's national runners up.

In tonight's main event, No. 1 North Carolina does it up against Tom Crean and No. 5 Indiana in a battle of college hoops blue bloods. The winner heads to the Elite Eight and a possible shot at the Final Four.

It should be a another strong night of college basketball, and it all gets going at 7:10 p.m. ET.

Below is your full TV schedule. All games can also be viewed online through the NCAA's March Madness Live website and accompanying smart phone and tablet apps.
