Michigan will play Tennessee in the Sweet 16 on Friday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. on CBS.

The Vols advanced to the Sweet 16 by beating No. 11 Iowa (play-in game), No. 6 UMass and No. 14 Mercer in the opening rounds of the NCAA tournament. Tennessee is 23-12 (11-7 SEC) on the season, but has won eight of its last nine games.

The Midwest Region features a Friday/Sunday format and Michigan will play on Friday at 7:15 p.m. Tickets for both sessions are available on the resale market starting at $117. Tickets for Friday games only are starting at $92.
