Little Caesars is offering free pizza after March Madness historic upset

On Friday night, the Don Draper at Little Caesars' marketing department apparently decided to get in on March Madness and made a bet on Twitter: If a bottom-seeded team beat a No. 1 seed that night, the pizza chain would offer everyone in the country a free Hot-N-Ready lunch combo.

Of course, the chances of this actually happening were slim to none. Yet against the odds, the University of Maryland-Baltimore County defeated the University of Virginia, becoming the first bottom-seeded men’s tournament team ever to defeat a top-seeded team in the first round.



So now Little Caesars owes us all lunch.


Per the terms of the promotion, the pizza chain will offer four deep dish slices and a single 20-ounce Pepsi beverage between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Monday, April 2 at participating U.S. Little Caesars locations across the country. The offer cannot be redeemed online or through delivery, and orders must be placed before 1 p.m. the same day. You can read the fine print here.


Honestly, we probably all owe the University of Maryland-Baltimore County Retrievers lunch after all this.
