In Michigan State and Wisconsin, the Big Ten has two Final Four teams for the first time since 2005 (Illinois and Michigan State).
The Spartans advanced to their ninth Final Four and seventh under Tom Izzo in a 76-70 overtime win over Louisville on Sunday, joining the Badgers, who punched their ticket in an 85 78 victory over Arizona on Saturday, in Indianapolis.
Michigan State will face Duke, the No. 1 seed and South Region champ, at 6:09 p.m. ET Saturday in the first national semifinal at Lucas Oil Stadium, and Wisconsin will take on Kentucky, the No. 1 overall seed and Midwest Region champ, at approximately 8:49 p.m. ET.
Both national semifinals will air on TBS.
If the Badgers and Spartans win, it would set up the first all-Big Ten NCAA title game since 1976, when Indiana capped its perfect season vs. Michigan.
The national title game is at 9 p.m. ET Monday, April 6.
