2014 WGC-Accenture Match Play: Tee times, TV schedule and matches for Saturday

Allan Henry-USA TODAY Sports

The Accenture Match Play has reached the quarterfinals with four good matchups set for Saturday.

Despite all of the angst over the big names not playing in the WGC Match Play, the tournament has been about as entertaining as anyone could have hoped. That should continue on Saturday, especially with four intriguing quarterfinal matchups. Match play is always full of upsets, often leading to some less-than-desirable late round head-to-heads. That isn't the case this year with a final eight loaded with star power.

The quarterfinals will feature four matchups of experience and achievement vs. youth and potential. All four matchups include one player with a major championship on his resume squaring off against a player who is 26 or younger. Louis Oosthuizen, Jim Furyk, Ernie Els and Graeme McDowell represent the old guard while Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth and Victor Dubuisson are among the future of the sport.

The action on Saturday will begin with the matchup of Oosthuizen and Day. Day -- a No. 2 seed -- is the highest remaining seed. After needing 22 holes to get by Billy Horschel on Thursday, Day was in the lead for 16 of 17 holes in a 3 & 1 win against George Coetzee on Friday. He won't have an easy go of it as Oosthuizen has played the course to 14-under this far, the best stroke play score of the field. Furyk and Fowler will be the second group on the course, in the lone battle of American players. Fowler scorched the back nine in the third round to complete a comeback victory against Sergio Garcia. Furyk went down early on Friday, but played well during the final 12 holes to advance.

Els and Spieth will be the first of the late groups on the course. The 20-year-old Spieth played the course to 13-under during the first three days and will be a tough out for Els. Els reached the quarterfinal despite playing the course at 4-over during during the first three rounds. McDowell and Dubuisson will be the last group on the course. McDowell completed impressive comebacks during the first three rounds. He won on Friday despite trailing by two with two to play. Dubuisson isn't a household name like the rest of the field, but the 23-year-old is making a name for himself this week.

Golf Channel and CBS will combine for six hours of live coverage on Saturday, allowing viewers to watch nearly every shot. The coverage will begin on Golf Channel at 12 p.m. ET, five minutes before Oosthuizen and Day are scheduled to tee off. The network will broadcast until 2 p.m. when coverage will shift to CBS, where it will continue until 6 p.m. Both broadcasts will also be available online via live simulcasts. There will also be six hours of radio coverage on PGA Tour Network, giving viewers multiple options for following every stroke.
