NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round-Virginia Tech vs Wisconsin Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Can the Wisconsin Badgers build another March Madness run? They'll first have to knock off the No. 1 overall seed Villanova Wildcats today. No easy task, to be sure.

Today's game is once again at KeyBank Center in Buffalo, N.Y. CBS has the broadcast and you can stream it on March Madness Live (web/iOS/Android). More viewing information can be found here. We've previewed the matchup here and here.

Ryan will have the recap for us, and Jon will be tweeting from the B5Q account once again (tweets also below, as is this weekend’s TV schedule). On Wisconsin!
