The four-seed Syracuse Orange (somehow) find themselves with a shot at the Sweet Sixteen but they'll have to get past the giant-killing 15-seed Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders in order to get there.

Opening tip is set for 6:10 p.m. EST and the game will be televised on TNT.

The Orange (20-13) defeated Dayton, 70-51, in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday while Middle Tennessee (25-9) shocked two-seed Michigan State.

If you're still looking for a place to watch the game, here's where Syracuse fans are gathered.

Boeheim and his players know they can't overlook this Conference USA team regardless of status.

Need to know what a Blue Raider is? We've got you.

We're pretty confident that the Orange will win and do their part to keep the ACC looking amazing in the NCAA Tournament. Of course, that's usually a recipe for disaster.
