Houston, we have a party. March Madness is set to reach a fevered pitch in April as the best remaining teams in the nation collide in Clutch City. This year's iteration of the Final Four and National Championship Game will be played in NRG Stadium for the third time since 2011. 

150,000 frenzied fans are expected to attend both Final Four games, but the question remains, who will they see? The Houston Cougars earned the No. 2 seed on Selection Sunday and could ride a huge wave of local support to their first title in program history. Ditto for the No. 6 Texas Longhorns, who would benefit greatly from playing in the Lone Star State. Regardless of who participates, fans and bettors alike can look forward to a wild ride full of Cinderellas, buzzer-beaters, and busted brackets as the 2023 NCAA Tournament gets underway.

Looking for more adrenalin-fueled sports action? You're in luck! The Final Four is just one of dozens of must-see events from an action-packed month. Sports fans can also look forward to the NBA and NHL playoffs, the Masters, the NFL Draft, and the return of the USFL.
