Eight teams will punch their ticket to the Sweet Sixteen on Saturday, as the 2018 NCAA Tournament continues in Pittsburgh, Dallas, Boise, and Wichita.

Outside of the Villanova Wildcats, the South Region’s No. 11 Loyola-Chicago, who delivered the first upset of the tournament with a last-second three to beat Miami on Thursday, tries to continue their upset run on Saturday against No. 3 Tennessee in Dallas.

Also in the South Region No. 5 Kentucky will try to prevent a second straight upset for No. 13 Buffalo, who blew out No. 4 Arizona on Thursday to end the Pac-12’s participation in this year’s NCAA Tournament.
