(KXAN) — March Madness is back in full force this week.

The 2022 NCAA Tournament is a return to the tournament that we experienced prior to the COVID-19 pandemic with full fan attendance and host sites spread out across the country.

The field of 68 is set. The “First Four” games from Dayton, Ohio kicked off the three-week tournament earlier this week.

The NCAA Tournament is made up of 68 teams. Thirty-two of those teams are automatic qualifiers, earning a spot by winning its conference’s postseason tournament. The other 36 teams are at-large selections picked by the NCAA Tournament selection committee.

New Orleans will host the NCAA men’s basketball national championship on April 4. The NCAA women’s basketball national championship will be played April 3 in Minneapolis.

Baylor won its first men’s basketball national championship in 2021, defeating Gonzaga for the title in front of a limited Lucas Oil Stadium crowd due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Stanford Cardinal won the 2021 NCAA women’s national championship beating Arizona at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
