The Virginia Cavaliers and Auburn Tigers earned their way to the Final Four, but only one can have the chance to play for a national title. Virginia ended it's 35-year Final Four drought and shook off their epic No. 1 seed failure last year. This is a team that has defeated their demons and will make it to the final game. Still, no one expected Auburn to make it this far and playing with house money can be an advantage. Who wins? 🏀

When Virginia fell behind by double digits in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, everyone thought they were going to crumble like they did against UMBC last year. Instead, the Cavaliers proved their mettle by coming back in that game and reaching the Final Four in dramatic fashion.

Virginia's Mamadi Diakite hit a buzzer-beating shot to force overtime and the Cavaliers fought to squeak out a victory against Purdue. Having those comeback wins and and close calls only makes them more prepared for the pressure of performing on the biggest stage of college basketball.

Auburn might have fought their way to the Final Four, but they didn't do it against the best defense in the country in points against. The Tigers don't stand a chance.

Many thought Auburn Tigers wouldn't make it passed North Carolina, but they did. No believed they could beat Kentucky after they lost Chuma Okeke to a torn ACL, but they did. Now, there are doubts they can get past the last No. 1 seed in the tournament, but judging from what they've accomplished so far, they will so that too.

Auburn has really turned things up to 11 during the NCAA Tournament, where they lead the entire field in points per game. Virginia has a great defense, but the Tigers have something magical about them this year.

They will be the team that survives and advances.
