Brackets busted: Twitter goes wild as 15-seed Oral Roberts beats 2-seed Ohio State
March Madness is truly back as brackets everywhere have been busted on the first full day of the 2021 NCAA Tournament. 15-seed Oral Roberts has pulled off a massive upset, taking down 2-seed Ohio State 75-72 in overtime. Oral Roberts will face 7-seed Florida in Round 2 after the Gators took down 10-seed Virginia Tech, also in overtime.

Biggest winner of Oral Roberts beating Ohio State (besides Oral Roberts, of course): Texas Tech and Arkansas.
The winner of Arkansas-Texas Tech will now play either Florida or Oral Roberts to go to the Elite Eight

Someone told me Saint Patrick’s Day was on March 17, but the #Gators have some serious four-leaf clovers up in Indianapolis.
Down goes No. 2 Ohio State! No excuses not to get out of the first weekend now.

I love hearing the rationale and analysis for how Oral Roberts beat Ohio State …
Gack. When you have more talent than the other team and every other possible massive school advantage, and you're a 2 seed playing a 15, that's a straight gack.
