NCAA Bracket 2012 And Schedule: Sunday's Elite Eight Matchups

Two teams, Louisville and Ohio State, are already on their way to the Final Four in New Orleans, and on Sunday two more teams will join them after South and Midwest regional finals.

The first game of the day will pit the No. 1 seed in the South, the Kentucky Wildcats, against the No. 3 seed Baylor Bears. Kentucky and coach John Calipari are considered by many the favorite to win the entire tournament based simply on roster talent alone, but Baylor will be no pushover. While the Wildcats can throw the likes of Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Doron Lamb at opponents, Baylor has size and athleticism in Quincy Acy, Perry Jones III and Quincy Miller.

The late game will see Midwest No. 1 seed North Carolina take on No. 2 seed Kansas. The Tar Heels survived overtime against the No. 13 seed Ohio Bobcats to reach the regional final, but if point guard Kendall Marshall cannot play again Carolina may be in some serious trouble. Big men Thomas Robinson and Jeff Withey have been huge all season long for the Jayhawks, and expect an epic battle in the paint when these two teams clash with Carolina's Tyler Zeller and John Henson late Sunday afternoon.

Here is today's regional finals schedule:


South: No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats vs. No. 3 Baylor Bears, 2:20 p.m. ET, CBS
Midwest: No. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels vs. No. 2 Kansas Jayhawks, 5:05 p.m. ET, CBS
