Well, there goes everyone's brackets.

Fairleigh Dickinson was looking to become only the second No. 16 seed to upset a No. 1, in this case Purdue.   Could the smallest team in this year' tournament get the job done?

An incredible game!

FDU led untilt he final seconds. They were up 61-68 with 29.2 seconds left on the clock. 

And they win it to become the third team out of New Jersey to upset in the last two years.

Amazing still, FDU only won five games last season.

Previously, only the University of Maryland Baltimore County as a No. 16 stunned No. 1 Virginia in the first round of the 2018 NCAA men's college basketball tournament.

Fairleigh Dickinson pays $500,000 on a $100 bet should they go all the way.
