In other action, the favored Tennessee Volunteers are ready to go against their small-school rival, the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders.

Middle Tennessee St. comes in with an impressive 26-6 mark and will be trying in earnest to keep its season alive after defeating Marshall 86-78 in the opening round. The Vols are the No. 1 seed in the region but didn't look particularly great against Savannah State in a 65-51 victory at home on Tuesday.

The game can be seen on ESPN at 7:00 p.m. ET.

In the bottom half of Region 2, the Minnesota Golden Gophers will travel to play the Miami Hurricanes.
