Louisville beating Notre Dame in the other semifinal wasn't particularly surprising, but the ease with which the Cardinals dispatched the Fighting Irish was. Notre Dame did not muster a field goal during the final 12:42 of the first half while Louisville built a 35-19 halftime lead, and the Cardinals maintained a double-digit cushion throughout the entire second half.

Game Time: 9 p.m. ET, Saturday, March 10
