NCAA Bracket 2012: Saturday's Final Four Game Schedule

The 2012 NCAA Tournament is unfortunately reaching it's conclusion, but before fans hear "One Shining Moment" late Monday night, there are still four teams left and three games to be played, starting Saturday night in New Orleans at the Final Four.

The early matchup pits bitter Bluegrass State rivals Kentucky against Louisville, the fifth such time these two teams have met in the NCAA tournament. The Wildcats and Cardinals have split the previous four contests. In the overall rivalry, Kentucky has won 18 of the 29 games between the two programs, including a 69-62 victory this season.

In the late game, while no in-state bragging rights are on the line, a coveted spot in tn Monday's championship game can be earned nonetheless, and fans can expect a big man battle when Bill Self's Kansas Jayhawks take on Thad Matta's Ohio State Buckeyes.

Here is the schedule for Saturday's two Final Four matchups:

No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats vs. No. 4 Louisville Cardinals, 6:09 p.m. ET, CBS

No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes vs. No. 2 Kansas Jayhawks, approx. 8:49 p.m. ET, CBS.
