(WXYZ) — The Empire State Building's "world-famous tower lights" will shine bright Saturday in support of Michigan State's Final Four play.

A rotating display will flash each of the four participating schools' colors:

  • Orange and Navy Blue for the University of Virginia
  • Blue and Orange for Auburn University
  • Green and White for Michigan State University
  • Black and Red for Texas Tech University

After the first game, the lights will flash in the winning teams' colors for 10 minutes then return to the Final Four rotation. After the end of the second game, "the lights will sparkle 10 minutes for the game winner and then rotate in the colors of the two teams who will face off in the National Championship."

On Saturday, April 6, the Final Four will tip off at 6:09 p.m. ET, with the University of Virginia facing Auburn University in the first game. Michigan State University plays Texas Tech University in the second game at 8:49 p.m. ET.
