Three of the NCAA men's March Madness games will be played in Dallas this weekend.

The big picture: American Airlines Center will host the tournament's South Regional games. The winner will move on to the Final Four.

What's happening: N.C. State and Marquette play at 6:09pm Friday. Houston plays Duke in the nightcap.

  • The winners will play each other on Sunday.
  • Tickets are on sale.

What's next: The winner of Sunday's game will advance to the Final Four next week in Phoenix.

The bottom line: North Texans are supposed to be anti-Houston but since they're the only Texas team left in the tournament … go Cougars?
