March Madness: Projecting the outcome of each Final Four game

The nets have been cut and tickets to Minneapolis have been punched for the top four men's college basketball teams in the nation. 

Now, all we can do is mourn our brackets and try to figure out what's going to happen next. 

Of the two games taking place Saturday night, No. 3 Texas Tech against No. 2 Michigan State is projected to be the closest. No. 1 Virginia is heavily favored over No. 5 Auburn earlier in the evening, but the Tigers have already knocked off one top seed in the tournament and are certainly capable of doing it again. 

Find out the predicted outcome of both Final Four games below, according to FiveThirtyEight
