It hasn't been long march madness to live up to its name.

Several surprises from double-digit teams, led by Kentucky's shocking loss to Oakland on Thursday night, have resulted in angst between the groups.

Following the Wildcats' 80-76 loss to the No. 14 Golden Grizzlies, the NCAA announced that less than 1% of perfect brackets remain. The exact figure was 0.00038%.


It started with position number 11. Duquesne defeated sixth-seeded BYU for a 71-67 victory. Mississippi State's loss to Michigan State added to the chaos, reducing the perfect brackets in the “Men's Bracket Challenge Game” to 13.89%.

Wins by two more double-digit teams (Oregon and Nevada) reduced that number to 2.43%.


Kentucky's loss to Oakland it seemed like the final nail in the coffin. According to the NCAA website, about 2,100 perfect groups out of the more than 29 million entered on major platforms remain perfect.

However, one notable name seems to have gotten lucky.

Atlanta Falcons running back Bijan Robinson is among the less than 1% with a perfect group.


A narrow victory helped by a controversial decision in the final seconds of the Kansas vs. Samford on Thursday may have saved a few more groups.
