When March Madness started, pizza chain Little Caesars promised that if a number 16 seed beat a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament, they'd give away free pizza for lunch.
Then the UMBC Retrievers did what has never been done before in the NCAA tournament. The number 16 seed beat the number 1 seed, the Virginia Cavaliers, pulling off the historic 74-54 victory in the first round Friday night.
Little Caesars tweeted they would make good on the promotion, Monday, April 2nd, and that everyone in America would get a free Little Caesars lunch combo.
Because "CRAZY HAPPENED" with a #16 beating a #1 (!!!!), everyone in America gets a free #LittleCaesars Lunch Combo on Monday, April 2nd.

To get the deal, you'll have to place your order between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. on April 2nd. It's only available at participating stores in all 50 states and Washington D.C. Only one combo is available per family.
The Retrievers' stunning upset may have busted a lot of brackets, but hey, at least we get free pizza out of the deal.
