NCAA Bracket Predictions, Elite Eight: Which Teams Make The Final Four?

We'll know our first Final Four team in the 2012 NCAA Tournament on Saturday evening following the conclusion of the Florida Gators battle against the Louisville Cardinals. Louisville is looking for its first trip to the Final Four for the first time since the 2005 tournament while Florida goes for its first since 2007, the year they won their second championship in a row.

In the second game, Ohio State also seeks to return to the Final Four for the first time since 2007, the year they lost to Florida in the National Title game. Syracuse hasn't made the Final Four since 2003 when they won the tournament with Carmelo Anthony.

Who will win on Saturday night? Let's go back to mascot versus mascot:
