NCAA Tournament 2016 TV schedule: Game times, TV schedule and broadcasting teams for Sweet 16

Everything you need to know to watch the Sweet 16.

The NCAA Tournament leaps back into action on Thursday, as the Sweet 16 begins with an exciting four-game slate that will determine the matchups for the South and West regional finals.

In the South, will Kansas -- the top seed in the tournament and a team that hasn't lost in nearly two months -- get one step closer to ending its three-year Final Four drought? Or will Maryland advance to the Elite Eight for the first time since 2002?

In the West, No. 4 Duke, the reigning NCAA champions, takes on No. 1 Oregon, which hasn't made the Final Four since 1939. In the other game, No. 2 Villanova faces No. 3 Miami. Both teams are loaded with upperclassmen and boast an impressive combination of size and shooting.

It should be another fun weekend of college hoops and it all starts Thursday night. Below is the full TV schedule. All games can be viewed online through CBS' March Madness Live website and app.
