SB Nation 2014 Final Four Preview

The college basketball season culminates this weekend when four teams descend on Dallas for the 2014 Final Four.

Florida, Connecticut, Wisconsin and Kentucky all earned trips to the game's premier event with regional final victories a week ago and are each just two wins away from a national championship.

With a record-setting crowd possibly on its way to AT&T Stadium for the national semifinals on Saturday night, here's how you can catch all the action from home.

No. 1 Florida Gators vs. No. 7 Connecticut Huskies, 6:09 p.m. ET, TBS (National broadcast), TNT (Florida teamcast), truTV (UConn teamcast)

The first national semifinal is a rematch of one of the regular season's more thrilling games. On Dec. 2, UConn beat Florida at home on a buzzer-beater from Shabazz Napier. Since then, the Gators have gone 30-0. They'll look to exact revenge on the last team to beat them as the No. 1 overall seed with a spot in the title game on the line.

The key to this one might be in the backcourt, where Napier will match up with fellow superstar Scottie Wilbekin. Both have carried their respective teams when necessary so far in the tournament. Wilbekin had 23 of his team's 62 points on Saturday night against Dayton in the Elite Eight, while Napier has had a flair for the dramatic throughout the tournament in leading UConn to four close victories.

No. 2 Wisconsin Badgers vs. No. 8 Kentucky Wildcats, approx. 8:49 p.m., TBS (National broadcast), TNT (Kentucky teamcast), truTV (Wisconsin teamcast)

About 40 minutes after Napier and Wilbekin go head-to-head, a pair of bigs will steal the show in the second semifinal. Frank Kaminsky guided the Badgers to their first Final Four in the Bo Ryan era. The 7-footer had 28 points and 11 rebounds against Arizona in the Elite Eight last week.

Kentucky's counter to Kaminsky, 7-foot Willie Cauley-Stein, was injured early in the Wildcats' Sweet 16 win over Louisville and will not be available. But 6'9 freshman forward Julius Randle anchors Kentucky's frontcourt. As the team's leading scorer, he has had a double-double in each of Kentucky's four NCAA Tournament games, including a 16-and-11 performance against Michigan in the regional final.
