March Madness 2012, Michigan Vs. Ohio: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The Ohio Bobcats can buck a trend when they play the Michigan Wolverines on Friday. With only two lower seeds winning their games in the NCAA Tournament on the first day of the second round, Ohio have a chance to be the most talked about upset so far.

The Bobcats are in the tournament thanks to a win over Akron in the MAC tournament that shocked the Zips out of a spot they were sure they would win. It certainly wasn't a bad regular season for Ohio (27-7, 11-5) but the Michigan Wolverines and their share of the Big Ten regular season title certainly have a more impressive resume.

It's not quite as popular an upset pick as you'd think, but 13 seeds winning is certainly not unheard of and the Bobcats will look forward to a winnable game against Temple or South Florida if they can topple the Wolverines on Friday.

Game Time: 7:20 p.m. ET
