Get free Little Caesars pizza — thanks to Virginia’s historic NCAA loss

RICHMOND, Va. -- While we are certain University of Virginia fans would rather be watching the Wahoos in Monday night's NCAA national title game, there is something that can take a bit of the sting away from the Cavaliers' historic NCAA loss. Free pizza!

Before the NCAA tournament began in March, Little Caesars pledged to give out free pizza if a #16 seeded school defeated a #1 seeded school in the basketball tournament.

It may have seemed like a safe bet at the time, since it had never happened before.

But as you now know, it happened.

The #16-seeded University of Maryland Baltimore County defeated #1-seeded Virginia by 20 points back on March 16.

Today is the day Little Caesar is making good on its offer.

Here are the details:
