The Loyola Chicago team of Sister Jean is out while the No. 12 seed Oregon State quad that beat it is into the Elite Eight. Another Cinderella run came to an end as Arkansas staved off No. 15 Oral Roberts' bid at history. 

Houston reached the regional finals for the first time since the days of "Phi Slama Jama." And No. 1 Baylor showed it might just be the best team in the country in taking down Villanova. 

Saturday's men's Sweet 16 slate was not short for storylines, but will Sunday bring even more drama?  

Four more games featuring teams from the East and West regions will be staged Sunday, featuring a pair of No. 1 teams in action.

NASCAR on the Bristol dirt: Start time, lineup, TV schedule and more for Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500

The NASCAR Cup Series is about to do something it hasn't attempted in 50 years — race on dirt.

Bristol Motor Speedway has trucked 23,000 cubic yards of dirt into its famed bullring to host NASCAR's first Cup Series race on literal earth since 1970. But how the dirt — and the tires — will hold up during the race is still to be determined.

The drivers had a blast playing in the dirt — some for the first time since they were kids — but four Friday practice sessions ultimately showed the tires can't sustain the heavy wear. The three layers of dirt acted as a cheese-grater and the tires in turn dug deep divots into the surface, forcing NASCAR to make several procedural changes Saturday in a desperate bid to save the show.

So, who will conquer the unique track? Will the Cup Series see its seventh winner in seven races? Here's all the information you need to get ready for Sunday's Food City Dirt Race at Bristol Motor Speedway:

How to watch U.S. men’s soccer team vs. Northern Ireland: TV channel, live stream, start time, USMNT roster

Sunday will be a big day for the U.S. men's national soccer program.

First, coach Gregg Berhalter's senior team will play Northern Ireland in a friendly at Windsor Park in Belfast. Later in the day, the U-23 team will attempt to qualify for the Olympic Games for the first time since 2008. That game is against Honduras (6 p.m. ET, FS1). All the U.S. needs to do is win and they will have booked their ticket to Tokyo for the Olympics later this summer.

On Thursday, the USMNT earned a 4-1 win over Jamaica at Stadion Wiener Neustadt in Wiener Neustadt, Austria. Sergiño Dest opened the scoring with his first career USMNT goal. Brenden Aaronson scored early in the second half after coming on as a substitute for Christian Pulisic, who returned to the U.S. lineup for the first time since October 2019. Sebastian Lletget scored twice late in the game to secure the win. 

The USMNT – which is playing Northern Ireland for the first time since 1948 – is 7-0-1 in its last eight games.
