Middle Tennessee State pulled off the first 15 vs. 2 upset since Florida Gulf Coast in 2013, beating Michigan State 90–81 to advance to the second round.

This was heartbreaking for the thousands and thousands of bracketologists who picked Tom Izzo’s Spartans to go deep into the tournament. They took to Twitter in droves to lament the death of their brackets.

Better luck next year.
