Little Caesars is offering free pizza to everyone Monday.
The Detroit-based pizza chain Little Caesars promised free lunch to everyone in the United States if a No. 16 seed beat a No. 1 seed in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
The University of Maryland, Baltimore County basketball team pulled if off a few weeks ago.
UMBC beat overall No. 1 seed Virginia 74-54 in the first round of the tournament. Before UMBC’s win, No. 16 seeds were 0 and 135 in matchups with No. 1 seeds since the tournament expanded to 64 team in 1985.
Participating stores will be giving away free $5 Hot-N-Ready Lunch combos between 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The combo includes four slices of deep dish pepperoni pizza and a 20-ounce Pepsi product. The promotional offer does come with some terms and conditions — and orders must be placed by 1 p.m.
