NCAA Bracket 2012: Final Four Action Tips Off Saturday Evening

The 2012 NCAA Tournament has been whittled down to just four teams, with Saturday's Final Four action to determine the participants in Monday night's championship game.

The early matchup pits bitter Bluegrass State rivals Kentucky against Louisville, the fifth such time these two teams have met in the NCAA tournament. The Wildcats and Cardinals have split the previous four contests.

In the late game, no in-state bragging rights are on the line, just a coveted spot in the championship game. Bill Self's Kansas Jayhawks will take on Thad Matta's Ohio State Buckeyes, with the matchup of Kansas big man Thomas Robinson and Ohio State's Jared Sullinger sure to be a factor.

Here is the schedule for Saturday's two Final Four matchups:

No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats vs. No. 4 Louisville Cardinals, 6:09 p.m. ET, CBS

No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes vs. No. 2 Kansas Jayhawks, approx. 8:49 p.m. ET, CBS.
