Middle Tennessee State University just pulled off the biggest upset of the 2016 NCAA Tournament, and perhaps of all time.
In a 2-15 matchup with Michigan State, Middle Tennessee shocked the world, winning 90-81.
In doing so, they became just the eighth No. 2 seed to beat a No. 15 seed in tournament history, overcoming a -16.5 spread that favoured MSU.
The massive upset likely ruined a lot of brackets. According to ESPN, MSU, who many thought should be a No. 1 seed, were selected to make the round of 32 by 91% of ESPN bracket users, the Sweet 16 by 80.9% of users, the Final Four by 38.6% of users, and to win the entire tournament by 22% of users.
Middle Tennessee took the sports world by surprise right out of the gate, surging to a 15-2 lead, from which they never looked back. They were led by an even performance from their starters, getting 21 points from forward Robert Upshaw, with double-digit scoring from their other four starters.
