Elite 8 Saturday Game Thread: Watch the battle for the Final Four

Kentucky will look to continue its undefeated run, but will Notre Dame's strong offense stand in their way? And which of the two 34-3 teams from the West region will emerge, Arizona or Wisconsin?

Saturday's Elite 8 matchups should provide some intriguing basketball for fans of the NCAA Tournament.

The West region has come down to Arizona and Wisconsin, two teams in the top three in the KenPom rankings. Arizona opened as a 1.5-point favorite over the Badgers, showing how closely these two teams are matched. Both also have fairly decent chances of moving on and stopping Kentucky's run at an undefeated season.

But that assumes that Kentucky can slow down what has become an offensive juggernaut in Notre Dame. The Wildcats opened as an 11-point favorite over the Irish in what should be a high-scoring affair.

Who will make it to Indianapolis?
