March Madness 2013: Schedule for NCAA Tournament Third Round games

Gregory Shamus

Sunday's Third-Round matchups feature plenty of intriguing games, from the biggest Cinderella to everybody's favorite college basketball troll.

The final eight teams in the Sweet 16 will be decided on Sunday, with giants and underdogs alike gunning for third-round NCAA Tournament wins. The West's No. 2 seed, Ohio State, faces No. 7 Iowa State to get things started at 12:15 p.m. ET on CBS. Another 2-7 matchup, Duke and Creighton, cap the day off in primetime on TBS.

In between there is plenty of intrigue. East No. 1 Indiana faces No. 9 Temple, while South No. 1 Kansas faces former coach Roy Williams and No. 8 North Carolina.

Tournament darlings Florida Gulf Coast continue their bid to become the first No. 15 to reach the Final Four, but first must get by No. 7 San Diego State in the South region. No. 13 La Salle and No. 12 Ole Miss will meet to ensure at least one double-digit seed will make it through on Sunday.
