The first game of the tourney* pits a blue horse against an eagle whose name means blue.
#16 Fairleigh Dickinson Knights (as in chess pieces) vs. #16 Florida Gulf Coast Eagles (Yep. Two #16s.)
*First game depends on if you think the tourney starts on Tuesday or Thursday. I lean towards Thursday, but am such a fan of the tourney I'll blog about Tuesday, like NFL fans who go to training camp.
