The Butler Bulldogs are making another historic climb to the pinnacle of NCAA men's basketball.

For the second year in a row, Brad Stevens' squad will be playing for it all, this time in Houston's Reliant Stadium.

Last year, Butler faced off against Duke in the 2010 title game that was played just minutes from its Indianapolis campus.

While the Blue Devils were an overwhelming favorite, the Bulldogs held their own throughout the contest.

Gordon Hayward's last-second, half-court heave was just inches away from making college basketball history.

Tonight, Butler faces the fiery UConn Huskies, a team that is on a roll. The Huskies have won 10 straight tournament games, starting with a 97-71 drubbing of DePaul in the opening round of the Big East tournament.

Here are five quick keys to a Butler upset win tonight.
