Yes everyone, No. 1 overall seed Kansas just fell to No. 9 seed Northern Iowa in spectacular fashion 69-67, ruining millions of brackets nation—wide in the process.

In addition, No. 3 seed New Mexico just lost badly to No. 11 seed Washington and if you don't know already, No. 2 seed Villanova lost earlier today to No. 10 seed Saint Mary's.

I unfortunately had the Jayhawks winning it all like many, so now you're probably thinking what's next?

Northern Iowa dominated in the first half, taking a big and shocking lead into the half, 36-28.

Things got even more interesting late in the game, as Northern Iowa made some unbelievable plays to stay ahead of the Jayhawks.

With only seconds left, it seemed Kansas was done for, but like in all games, it's not over until it's over. 

The Panthers from Cedar Falls would hold on for the most shocking upset of the tournament. Now what will the future hold for this little team that could and all of the other upsets?

Well, only time will tell but, the win has resulted in countless ruined brackets and fans crushed. Ladies and gentlemen, this is why we call this tournament March Madness!
