The UCLA vs Gonzaga live stream is scheduled to start at 8:34 p.m. ET / 5:34 p.m. PT today (Saturday, April 3).
It will be on CBS.

It's time for the UCLA vs Gonzaga live stream to close out the Final Four — and in fitting fashion, it features two of the best storylines from the NCAA Tournament. Tonight, we will see who’s side fate chooses in this March Madness live stream.

On one side of the court, you have the top seeded, undefeated Gonzaga Bulldogs who are trying to punch their ticket to the final and become the first undefeated champion since 1976. Facing them from across the building you have the 11-seeded UCLA Bruins, the first team in nearly a decade to go from the First Four to the Final Four. Who will keep their shining moment shimmering?

The Bulldogs haven’t just won games to get to this point, they’ve dominated them. Much has been made of their 30-0 record, but not enough has been made of how they have now won 27 straight by double-digits, an NCAA D-1 record. In the middle of that domination has been sophomore big man Drew Timme. The mustached man has averaged 25 points-per-game over the Zags last 3 wins, six points higher than his regular season average.

The Bruins have enjoyed a different kind of run. One that just makes you think maybe, just maybe they are that team of destiny. It doesn’t make sense. The experts didn’t predict it, but here they are. Their last two wins have come over 2-seeded Alabama and 1-seeded Michigan who they edged 51-49. Like Gonzaga, UCLA has a sophomore to thank for much of their run. Guard Johnny Juzang dropped 28 points on the Wolverines and is averaging 20 points-per-game in the tournament. This is the Bruins 19th all-time Final Four appearance, but first since 2008.

Gonzaga is a 14-point favorite in the game. The over/under is 145.5.

How to watch UCLA vs Gonzaga live streams with a VPN

Hoops fans, if for some reason you've had to leave your own "bubble" — or you can't get CBS or Paramount Plus where you are for some strange reason — and you can't watch the UCLA vs Gonzaga live stream, you're not out of luck. With a virtual private network, or VPN, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town (or somewhere that blackouts won't hit), and access the same streaming services you already paid for.
