Thanks to a 16-seed beating a 1-seed in the NCAA Tournament, Little Caesars is giving away free pizza on April 2. 

It's the pizza chain's "If Crazy Happens" promotion, which happened when 16-seed University of Maryland, Baltimore County upset No. 1 Virginia on Friday night. 


Oops! St. Paul Saints GM now owes someone $10,000

Because of UMBC, Little Caesars will be handing out free $5 Hot-N-Ready lunch combos (pepperoni pizza and 20 ounce soda) from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday, April 2. 

There are some catches to note: 

  • Must place your order between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.
  • 1 personal sized lunch combo per family. 
  • You have to mention the promotion at check-out.
  • It's only good while supplies last, so if they run out before 1 p.m. you're out of luck. 

There are 40 Little Caesars locations in Minnesota. Find one close to you right here
