When the Syracuse Orange take on the Wisconsin Badgers in the Sweet Sixteen on Thursday, they'll be playing at 7:15 p.m. EST on CBS.

The announcers will be Bill Raftery and Verne Lundquist. Rejoice.

On the other side of the Boston regional, the Cincinnati Bearcats will take on the Ohio St. Buckeyes at 9:45 p.m. The winners of both games will meet on Saturday for the right to play in the Final Four.

Syracuse is one of four Big East teams in the Sweet Sixteen (SU, Cincy, Marquette and Louisville) while the Big Ten has four as well.

The Orange, who were derided all season for their weak schedule, went 6-1 against teams currently in the Sweet Sixteen, which includes the Big East teams noted above as well as Florida and NC State.

It's the state of Ohio that reigns supreme with four teams in the Sweet Sixteen (OSU, Cincy, Ohio and Xavier). It's the first time that a state has produced four teams at this stage.
