Little Caesars Pizza offered free lunch on Monday after losing a March Madness bet.

The pizza chain promised it would give out free pizza if a No. 16 seed beat a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

On March 16, the unlikely scenario came true when the University of Maryland, Baltimore County defeated the Virginia Cavaliers 74-54.

Little Caesars gave out $5 Hot-N-Ready pizza combos at no cost Monday, April 2, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., while supplies lasted. The deal included a deep dish pepperoni pizza and a 20-ounce Pepsi product.
