If Sunday's March Madness action is anything like Saturday's, viewers are in for a treat.
With No. 1 seed Gonzaga falling to No. 9 seed Wichita State, 76-70, the Bulldogs became the first No. 1 seed to be eliminated.
Now that one of the top dogs is out of the race, Sunday promises to be an exciting one as underdogs like Florida Gulf Coast and La Salle look to continue their fairytale run. Let's take a look at the entire slate of action on Day 6 of March Madness.

Cinderella to Watch: Florida Gulf Coast Eagles
Just two nights ago, FGCU became just the seventh No. 15 seed to take down a No. 2 in NCAA tournament history. Led by sharpshooting guards Sherwood Brown and Bernard Thompson, the Eagles shocked the country and destroyed many brackets when they took down mighty Georgetown.
Although they shot just 68 percent from the charity stripe and just 43 percent overall from the field, the Eagles earned the upset with a fantastic defensive effort. Andy Enfield's squad will have to play with that same intensity Sunday against San Diego State, who just dropped 70 points on Oklahoma on Friday.
A second win and a spot in the Sweet 16 would be a monumental step for Enfield's program.
Key Player: Seth Curry, G, Duke
Few players possess the array of scoring skills of Seth Curry. The senior shooting guard is masterful with the ball in his hands, making defenders look silly with his sick ball-handling.
When he takes it to the rim, he's a creative finisher. But beware: He can drain threes like nobody's business.
In Duke's opening win against Albany, Curry dropped 26 points on 10-of-14 shooting and chipped in six rebounds, two assists and two steals. With the Blue Devils squaring off against one of the country's top offensive teams in No. 7 Creighton, Curry will be tasked with being the No. 1 scorer for Duke on Sunday.
Best Matchup: No. 2 Duke vs. No. 7 Creighton, TBS, 9:40 p.m. ET
Who Will Move on to the Sweet 16?
Both teams know how to do one thing extremely well: score the basketball.
Duke averages just a shade over 78 points per game—good for sixth in the nation—while Creighton ranks first in the country with a 50.8 field-goal percentage.
While the Blue Devils' attack is anchored by the senior trio of Mason Plumlee, Ryan Kelly and Seth Curry, the Bluejays rely on 6'8" junior Doug McDermott to bolster their offense. In fact, the sharpshooting forward is the only Bluejay who averaged double-digit scoring (23.2) during the regular season.
In a matchup that should feature plenty of three-point shooting, the Sunday night showdown should turn into a shootout.
