Florida Gators vs. Connecticut Huskies Final Four NCAA March Madness matchup will begin at 3:09 p.m. PT on April 5, 2014. The (30-8) Huskies will meet the (36-2) Gators at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Information on how to watch the game on live stream free can be found below.

UConn fans and the Gator Nations are probably very excited yet nervous due to the uncertainty whether their college' basketball team will remain on the AT&T Stadium court for the championship game on April 7, 2014.

According to UPS Team Performance Index, Florida has a higher rating (133.35 overall TPI) in its overall efficiency and teamwork than Connecticut (121.62 overall TPI). Under the six key components of the TPI, the Gators outperform Huskies in rebounding, offense, ball handling and miscues, while fairing similarly in defense and quality of opponent.

Gators are 5-1 ATS in Final Four games since 2000. If they make it past UConn, it will be the first time since 2007 to play in the March Madness championship game. According to SB Nation, Florida's 62-52 win over Dayton was the eighth time in the last 10 games the Gators have won by double-digits. Florida's track records in recent games have resulted in solid double-digit wins. The odds are that they will continue that streak against UConn.

While Florida is the favorite, UConn, however, may pull another March Madness upset like how they came away from a 60-54 win over the Michigan State Spartans at the Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday. This upset adds to their four existing wins despite being the underdog.

Meanwhile, the last time Florida played Connecticut this season, UConn's senior guard Shabazz Napier scored 26 points, including a buzzer-beater to defeat the Gators with a 65-64 win.
