Final Four 2012: All-Time Tournament Records Between Remaining Teams

The 2012 NCAA tournament has come all the way down to the Final Four, with just two pairs of teams remaining from the original 68. All four will attempt to advance and play for a chance at the national championship, but how have these teams fared against one another historically?

Evan Jacoby at Run the Court provided an in-depth breakdown on the histories of the four teams and their records against one another in the NCAA tournament.

In the most eagerly anticipated matchup yet in this year's tournament, the Kentucky Wildcats will take on their in-state rivals, the Louisville Cardinals. The two teams have met four times in the NCAA tournament, although the most recent of those games was in 1984. The rivals are 2-2 all-time against one another.

On the other side of the bracket, the Ohio St. Buckeyes will face the Kansas Jayhawks in a battle of No. 2 seeds. This will be the first-ever meeting between these two teams in the NCAA tournament.

Should Kentucky advance, they are 1-1 all-time against the Jayhawks in the tournament, while Ohio State has a stellar 5-1 record against the Wildcats. However, Kentucky's lone win came just last year, in the 2011 Sweet 16.

If Louisville advances to the national championship game, they hold an 0-1 record against both Kansas and Ohio State in the tournament, although those losses are ancient history. The Cardinals lost to OSU in 1961 and to the Jayhawks in 1967.
