NCAA Tournament Schedule 2012: Brackets Likely Busted, But March Madness Continues Saturday

The 2012 NCAA Tournament looked like it be relatively upset free through the first half of Friday's games, but everyone got their wish when the brackets were busted with quite a few upsets happening in the final games of the first round. The show must go on, however, with the March Madness schedule continuing on Saturday.

Considering it's probably worthless to watch the games with your bracket in mind, the most important game for Minnesotans will come on Saturday evening when the Iowa St. Cyclones play the top-seeded Kentucky Wildcats in a game scheduled for 6:45 p.m. CST on CBS. Iowa State's head coach is former Minnesota Timberwolves player Fred Hoiberg and their top player is Minnesota native and Minnesota Golden Gophers transfer Royce White.

The day's scheduled will tip off with the No. 1 seed Syracuse Orange playing the Kansas State Wildcats at 11:15 followed by a game featuring everyone's favorite Cinderella -- the Gonzaga Bulldogs -- playing Jared Sullinger and the Ohio St. Buckeyes 1:45.
