If history is any indication, at least one team that many of you had penciled in for the national championship game will be going home after today. Here's a look at today's game times and TV listings. All times listed are Eastern:

2:00 PM: (1) Boston University vs. (4) Yale
Northeast Regional Semifinal, Manchester, N.H.

4:30 PM: (2) Michigan Tech vs. (3) St. Cloud State University
