one day. I left one perfect slide in the CBS Sports Bracket Challenge. The NCAA Basketball Championship is back for the first time since 2019 – after being canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic in the United States last spring – and March is sure to bring the usual craze in parentheses. Only one player in the CBS Sports Bracket Challenge selected all 16 winners on Day 1.
The first big domino to topple came in the southern region as the 15th seed Oral Roberts Annoyance number 2 seeds Ohio State 75-72 in absolute shock on Friday. Just how big is the shock? Among the users on the CBS Sports Bracket Challenge, 97% were ahead of the Buckeyes past the Golden Eagles in the first round, and with good reason – it’s only the ninth time, since the field expanded to 64 teams in 1985. That No. 15 seed broke the No. 2 seed. To make matters worse for some of these OSU supporters, 4% of all Bracket Challenge players have Buckeyes beat everything.
After that, the number of perfect arcs was very low and that number continued to decrease for the rest of the day with more turbulence. No. 12 seeds Oregon No. 5 won the seeds Tennessee11 seeds Syracuse Handling seed number 6 San Diego State The Midwest Regional Seed No. 13 North Texas Eliminate No. 4 seeds Bordeaux In the southern region.
March Madness is truly back, and the ups and downs of this year’s NCAA Championships are sure to continue.
