The March Madness 2013 Round of 64 will kick off tomorrow as the best teams in the country battle it out for college basketball's most prestigious prize.

The bracket has been set (printable version available here), with plenty of fascinating matchups set to come our way throughout the tournament.

Least of which being the Round of 64, with a myriad of intriguing games slated.

Read on to see a full schedule for the second round of the tournament, as well as some of the top games and upsets to be watching for in the Round of 64.

Top Games to Watch

Wisconsin [5] vs. Ole Miss [12]—Mar. 22, 12:40 p.m. ET

Marshall Henderson is playing lights-out basketball for the Rebels right now, who'll be hoping that continues in their Round of 64 game.

Ole Miss has won it's last five games, including an SEC tournament title, thanks to Henderson, and they'll be likely to find some success against the swarming defense of the Badgers—who will have a tough time trying to contain Henderson.

If the star guard continues his incredible run, then this game could be one of the top offense vs. defense battles to see in the tournament this year. 

 

Memphis [6] vs. Saint Mary's [11]—Mar. 21, 2:45 p.m. ET

Memphis come into the tournament this year perhaps a little underrated, but still certainly expected to win through their opening games in 2013.

Yet after watching Matthew Dellavedova and the Saint Mary's Gaels tear up on Tuesday, the Tigers might not be such a lock to progress after all.

Saint Mary's were strong and disciplined right across the court, and showed the patience needed to progress at the tournament this year.

Look for them to challenge the Tigers early and refuse to go away all game—making for a great struggle between two very capable teams in 2013.

 

Top Upsets to Watch

Minnesota [11] over UCLA [6]—Mar. 22, 9:57 p.m. ET

Minnesota simply ooze talent right across the court, and given the injury to Jordan Adams, actually match up as the stronger team against UCLA.

The Bruins still have Shabazz Muhammad as a big weapon on the court, but if they can shut him down, then the Gophers could find themselves with a real chance in this one. After all, they did take down Indiana earlier in the year, so they can certainly knock off UCLA.

Definitely a big upset chance in the second round.

 

Bucknell [11] over Butler [6]—Mar. 21, 12:40 p.m. ET

With Butler perhaps over-seeded as a No. 6, Bucknell will have a great chance of pulling off an upset in this one and moving through to the third round.

The Bulldogs have struggled mightily throughout the latter half of the season (ever since their win against Gonzaga, really) and don't carry the best form-line into the tournament. Moreover, they've won just one of their six games against Atlantic 10 teams in 2013.

With Mike Muscala, the Bison have enough of an offensive presence to beat Butler here. They've won their last seven games in a row, and are carrying great momentum into the tournament, which, for an over-seeded team like Butler, will be too difficult to contain.

Look for Bucknell to win through to the third round.
