2021 NCAA Tournament bracket: College basketball scores, March Madness TV schedule, live stream by region


The first round of NCAA Tournament action on Friday is flying by, but not without significant bracket upheaval. A No. 2 seed fell to a No. 15 seed for just the ninth time in tourney history, a 3 seed got a good scare and there were numerous games that needed overtime to decide the outcome.

By far the most consequential game was No. 15 seed Oral Roberts upending the second-seeded Ohio State Buckeyes in overtime. ORU became the first No. 15 seed since 2016 to dropkick a No. 2 seed from the bracket with its 75-72 win. But there were some other notable developments that did not go chalk, including No. 12 seed Oregon State upsetting No. 5 seed Tennessee and No. 3 seed Arkansas getting all it could handle from Colgate before squeezing out the Raiders late.

On Saturday, another marathon day is on deck with 16 games on the slate. The action tips just after noon ET and features No. 1 seeds Gonzaga and Michigan, as well as No. 2 seeds Alabama and Iowa.

As the home of March Madness, CBS Sports will be tracking every game and every score as we keep you apprised of notable developments in our continuously updating live NCAA Tournament Bracket with matchup analysis for every game. And the schedule? It’s hard to keep up with on that printable bracket of yours.
