March Madness 2012, San Diego State Vs. NC State: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

NCAA Tournament action returns to Columbus on Friday, with the first game of the day pitting No. 6 seed San Diego State against No. 11 seed North Carolina State. The Wolfpack snuck in off the bubble with an impressive ACC Tournament showing. Mark Gottfiried's club advanced to the semifinals in Atlanta and pushed the No. 1 seed North Carolina Tar Heels to the limit. San Diego State comes to Columbus at 10-4 in a competitive Mountain West Conference. The Aztecs are not the touted team they were last year, but they're still a well-balanced team with a lot of quality wins on their resume. The lower seeded Wolfpack are actually favored by 2.5 points so this should be a good, close game to start the day in Columbus. Complete broadcast information below:

Venue: Nationwide Arena, Columbus, OH
