Watch: Bronco Roundup Game Day Show previews Boise State vs. Northwestern

Join KTVB's Jay Tust and Brady Frederick live in Sacramento on KTVB Channel 7 for a preview of Boise State's NCAA Tournament bout with Northwestern.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The 2023 NCAA Tournament is officially underway, and a pair of underdogs are looking to make some noise in a loaded West Region, starting Thursday evening in Sacramento. 

No. 10 seed Boise State (24-9, 13-5 MW) meets seventh-seeded Northwestern (21-11, 12-8 Big Ten) at 5:35 p.m. MT at the Golden 1 Center. The Broncos are on a mission to win their first March Madness contest ever, while the Wildcats look to repeat a 2017 first-round win in their second appearance on the national dancefloor. 

Northwestern head coach Chris Collins took home Big Ten Coach of the Year, and Wildcat standout Chase Audige was tabbed as the conference's best defensive player. Additionally All-Big Ten First Team honoree Boo Buie is averaging a team-best 17.1 points per game.

The Broncos are led by All-Mountain West First Team standout Tyson Degenhart, who is averaging 14.3 points per game. All five of Boise State's starters are scoring in double figures, and were apart of last year's NCAA Tournament team that fell to Memphis in the opening round. 

Thursday's bout will be nationally televised on truTV. For information on how to watch or listen to the game, check out KTVB's Bronco preview story
