Southeast Region: UCLA Bruins (7) vs. Michigan State Spartans (10) Thurs. March 17, 2011 9:20 p.m. EST

There are a few highly anticipated matchups in the second round (more like first round) of the 2011 NCAA Tournament, but perhaps the one that tops them all is two of the most storied college basketball programs going head-to-head when the UCLA Bruins (7) take on the Michigan State Spartans (10).

On Thursday night both the Bruins and the Spartans will head to Tampa in what could be the first truly competitive matchup in the 2011 NCAA Tournament. Even though both of these programs are no stranger to the NCAA Tournament and the Final Four for that matter, UCLA (7) and Michigan State (10) have struggled to get back to form as of late and haven’t really been considered to be legitimate forces to be reckoned with coming into March Madness.

Neither one of these teams may have the star power or talent that they have in years past, but they will be giving each other a run for their money on Thursday night as they battle it out for the right to advance to the next round. With the Florida Gators (2) possibly being their matchup, the UCLA Bruins will be highly motivated to get some revenge against the team that knocked them out of the tournament two years in a row.

As of right now, the Spartans are favored to come out on top in this matchup despite being the lower seed. With -1.5 point spread, MSU will try and get the win, but I believe UCLA should be the team to advance.
