Final Four Schedule Has VCU Vs. Butler, Followed By Kentucky Vs. UConn

64 teams have been eliminated in the 2011 NCAA Tournament. In years past, that would mean that a champion had already been crowned. But its different this year. 68 teams started, and now only four remain. The Final Four is set, and it contains a few big surprises.

The shocking matchup between the No. 11 Va. Commonwealth Rams and the No. 8 Butler Bulldogs will tip off the Final Four on Saturday night at 6:09 PM. Later in the night, in a bit of a more traditional meeting, the No. 3 Connecticut Huskies will face the No. 4 Kentucky Wildcats at 8:49 PM. All this will set up the NCAA Tournament Championship Game on Monday night.

All of the Final Four games will be broadcast live on CBS. Jim Nantz will have the call, along with Clark Kellogg, Steve Kerr, and Tracy Wolfson.

This unique Final Four guarantees that a mid-major team will meet a big conference team for the national title for the second year in a row. Will Butler be in the final once again, or will First Four team VCU be the first ever team to play seven games in the NCAA Tournament? We'll find out next weekend.
