The Sweet Sixteen matchup between the Arizona Wildcats and Texas A&M Aggies will take place on Saturday at 5 p.m. PT at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

The game will air on ESPN2. The winner will play the winner of No. 1 NC State-No. 4 Indiana on Monday in the Elite Eight.

Arizona routed No. 13 Stony Brook and squeaked by No. 11 BYU 52-46 on Wednesday to advance to this point.

Despite being a No. 2 seed, Texas A&M is lucky to be here. They needed a late comeback to outlast No. 15 Troy in the first round and needed overtime to take down No. 7 Iowa State on Wednesday.

Still, Her Hoop Stats gives the Aggies a 63.5% chance of advancing, with a projected score of 65-61. Texas A&M is 25-2 and a regular in the NCAA Tournament, making it 15 years in a row (not including 2020).

They will be searching for their fourth-ever Elite Eight. Arizona has never made it that far. Saturday’s game will be just their second Sweet Sixteen in program history.
