How to Watch March Madness 2021: Sweet Sixteen March 27-28




, ,

And then there were 16. After two rounds filled with upsets and busted brackets, March Madness continues as we’ve reached the final 16 teams in the tournament.

Among the remaining teams, there are four double-digit seeds remaining— (11) Syracuse, (11) UCLA, (12) Oregon State, and (15) Oral Roberts — with UCLA being the only First Four play-in team remaining, and Oral Roberts being the second 15th seed to reach the Sweet Sixteen in the tournament’s history. Undefeated and No. 1 overall-seed Gonzaga is only four wins away from putting an exclamation point on the first undefeated season since the 1975-76 Indiana Hoosiers. With four teams left in the field, the Pac-12 is the most represented conference remaining in the Indianapolis bubble. 

There will be a limited number of spectators in attendance; however, cord cutters can find out how to watch every moment of the Sweet Sixteen below.
