    Everything to get setup to watch all tonight's awesome NCAA Tournament action.

    The Madness is back.

    After a brief reprieve, the NCAA Tournament kickstarts back into high gear tonight, with the Sweet 16 beginning a loaded four-game slate will determine the matchups for the South and West regional finals.

    Starting with the South, No. 2 Villanova sees if they can finally get the monkey off the back against the mastermind of that brilliant George Mason Final Four run, Jim LarraƱaga and No. 3 seeded Miami. Both teams do it well on both sides of the ball. Though the Hurricanes nearly gave up a massive comeback to recent tourney darlings Wichita State, they more than earned their way into tonight's opener.

    In the South's late matchup, top seeded Kansas -- as in the number one over all seed in the entire tourney -- looks to win their first championship since 2008 and get back in the Final Four for the first time since 2013. Their opponent? The Big Ten's own, four-seeded Maryland. Kansas alum UMD head coach Mark Turgeon and the Terps haven't tasted an Elite Eight since 2002, the last time they won a national title.

    Shifting coasts, two former Big 12 rivals collide as No. 2 Oklahoma looks to stop No. 3 Texas A&M's semi-miraculous run. A&M looked dead to rights until a historic, shocking comeback against Northern Iowa in 2 OT helped catapult them into the Sweet 16. Lon Kruger and OU, meanwhile, looks to get back to the Final Four for the first time since 2002.

    In the nightcap, No. 4 Duke, the defending national champs, takes on Oregon, a one-seed for the first time in school history, and a team that hasn't made a Final Four since 1939. You read that right.

    It should be a great night of college hoops, and it all gets going at 7:10 p.m. ET.

    Below is your full TV schedule. All games can also be viewed online through the NCAA's March Madness Live website and accompanying smart phone and tablet apps.
