Many people would argue that the South Region is the toughest and deepest of all regions in the NCAA Tournament, but that idea has definitely changed since the top seeds in the region have fallen like flies in such a short span of time.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, then you definitely haven’t filled out a bracket this year. The Florida Gators are everyone’s pick to make it to the Final Four from the region and even win the entire tourney as the field’s No. 1 overall seed.

While Florida is the overwhelming favorite right now, the No. 4 seeded UCLA Bruins would like to say something about that. Steve Alford‘s Bruins are in a good position to knock off the No. 1 overall seed and advance to the Elite Eight for the first time since 2008.

Florida’s road definitely got a lot easier with Ohio State‘s second round loss to the Dayton Flyers as well as the Syracuse Orange‘s loss to the same Flyers in the round of 32. If that doesn’t make things easier, a Stanford Cardinal upset of New Mexico in the second round and the Kansas Jayhawks in round three will definitely do the trick.

Whoever wins the UCLA-Florida matchup will likely head to the Final Four as two double-digit seeds in Dayton and Stanford will be fighting for the opportunity to play the best remaining team in the region.

Let’s take a look at the Sweet 16 matchups and TV schedules for the South Region:

-No. 1 Florida vs No. 4 UCLA on Thursday, March 27 at 9:45 p.m. EST on CBS

 

-No. 11 Dayton vs No. 10 Stanford on Thursday, March 27 at 7:15 p.m. EST on CBS
