Coach Bruce Pearl’s University of Tennessee Volunteers—Tablet Magazine’s official college basketball team—advanced to the NCAA tournament’s Sweet Sixteen round Saturday with a convincing win over underdog Ohio. Almost as importantly, the true Big Dog in Tennessee’s region, overall number-one Kansas, was defeated, in a stunning, thrilling upset, by Northern Iowa. Which means the Vols’ route to the Final Four just got a little bit easier …

… except first they will have to beat two-seed Ohio State, the Big Ten champion. The game goes down Friday night at 7 E.S.T., in St. Louis. Can you even wait that long?
