Butler vs Connecticut, 6:25 PM, CBS

As a casual college basketball fan with no rooting interest outside of the Pac-10, you couldn't ask for a better championship game. On one side, you've got the perennial cinderella team in Butler. The Bulldogs are here after victories against Old Dominion, Pittsburgh, Wisconsin, Florida, and VCU. On the other side, representing the big, bad Big East, are the Connecticut Huskies. The 3-Seed Huskies have beaten Bucknell, Cincinnati, San Diego State, Arizona, and Kentucky.

Both teams have obviously had great seasons, and this should be a close one all the way. But for no particular reason, I'm going with Butler. Something about the team just gives off a championship feeling, and instead of falling short like last season, I think they escape with the crystal basketball this year. Prediction: Butler

Record: 48-18
