If you filled out your bracket the way you were "supposed" to this year, you probably were handsomely rewarded. The Baylor vs. Gonzaga narrative has been going on for quite awhile this season. They were supposed to play all the way back in early December but that game was postponed due to the virus. They've easily been the best in their conferences all season and while there was plenty of madness in this tournament, we still have two top seeds facing off in the 2021 National Championship.

The National Championship will be available on fuboTV, which will air on CBS. You can live stream all NCAA Basketball Games on CBS with fuboTV.

National Championship - Monday, April 5

#1 Baylor Bears vs. #1 Gonzaga - 9:20 p.m. ET - CBS - National Championship

While the clock has struck midnight for all of the Cinderella schools this season, just because we have two No. 1 seeds in the National Championship game doesn't mean we didn't get here without some incredible drama. Sure there is some recency bias but Gonzaga and UCLA played in one of the best Final Four games of all time. Let's set it up because it's worth reliving for seasons to come.

The Bruins were down two with five seconds left and Bruins guard Johnny Juzang had the ball. He missed his initial shot but got the rebound and was able to lay it up to tie the game at 90. Double overtime seemed inevitable. That's when Jalen Suggs got the ball for the last possession. Just watch the video below. He barely passed half court and hit the shot of a lifetime. By hitting the buzzer beater, Gonzaga's undefeated season stayed alive and denied the No. 11 seed Bruins one of the most improbable title runs in the history of the sport.

The lowest seed to win the national championship A No. 1 seed has won the last three championships and 22 of the last 35. No. 1 seeds make it to the championship 50 percent of the time and this year was no deviation. But just to put in perspective how improbable UCLA's run was, the lowest seed to win the national championship was the first year the tournament expanded to its current format of 64 teams from 53. That was when the No. 8 Villanova Wildcats beat the Patrick Ewing powerhouse Georgetown Hoyas who won the championship the year before.

By no means was UCLA guaranteed to beat Baylor for the record 12th title, but making it this far was a feat in itself when the Bruins barely made the tournament in the first place. Instead Gonzaga remains the best team in the nation and Suggs remains the best quote in the game when he said all he wanted to do was emulate D Wade and the late great Kobe Bryant. The Bulldogs undefeated season remains in tact after their most difficult contest in the semifinals. Their opponent in the national championship will only be more difficult.

Baylor will face the Bulldogs in their first National Championship appearance since 1948. In that tournament, only eight teams played for the title and the Bears were the runners-up to the first ever title won by the Kentucky Wildcats. This team has steamrolled their tournament competition that makes them formidable opponents not to finish the runner up  this second time around. While they struggled late in the regular season against in-conference opponents, they have left absolutely nothing on the table in this tournament.

They beat No. 2 seed Houston in the Final Four by almost twenty. This Cougars team isn't some kind of joke. They are the best H-Town team since Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler were tearing it up in the early 80s. These teams were some of the best in 2019 and 2020 and they just have seen their shine yet. They're both due. Both No. 1 seeds are deserving. So even with the stability of two No. 1 seeds meeting for the championship, this one is a toss up in a salivating and incredibly even matchup. This heavyweight title fight card is as about as good as it gets.
