The men's and women's Connecticut Huskies basketball teams are national champions, but one local burrito chain might not be too happy about that.

According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, a group of Moe's Southwest Grill franchises were running a deal that lowered the price of a burrito each time the two teams advanced in the NCAA tournament.

Normally priced at around $8, the cost dropped all the way to $1, losing the restaurants around $500,000 in business.
