‘Crazy Happened’: Little Caesars offers free pizza after historic upset

Business & Consumer

Little Caesars made a promise: if a 16-seed wins in the NCAA Tournament, it will give out free food.

And after the University of Maryland-Baltimore County stunned Virginia on Friday, the pizza chain is keeping their promise.

On its Facebook page on Thursday, the company announced it would offer a free lunch combo if the underdog won.

It seemed like a safe bet, as the top-seeded teams have won in all 135 previous meetings in the men’s basketball tournament.

On Friday, UMBC became the first 16-seed to upset a 1-seed in tournament history.

The company made another post early Saturday morning, announcing it would deliver on their promise.

The offer will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on April 2 or until supplies last.

The combo comes with four slices of pepperoni pizza and a 20-ounce drink.
