OMAHA, Neb. — It’s the matchup many college basketball fans in the Kansas City area and Sunflower State hoped to see when the NCAA Tournament bracket was revealed on Selection Sunday.

The second-seeded Kansas Jayhawks and seventh-seeded Wichita State Shockers moved on to round two of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament with wins on Friday. Kansas toppled New Mexico State, 75-56 and Wichita State slid past Indiana, 81-76.

Those wins set up something that’s only happened a handful of times, and FOX 4’s Al Wallace has the reaction from fans in Omaha in the video.

The game tips off Sunday afternoon at 4:15 at the CenturyLink Center.
