Little Caesars is making good on its promise to give a $5 Hot-N-Ready lunch combo to America if a 16th seed upset a No. 1 seed during the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. UMBC, located in Baltimore, Maryland, did just that when the team defeated No. 1-ranked University of Virginia 74-57 on March 16 in the first round of the March Madness tournament. Prior to the win, a No. 16 seeds were 0-135 against No. 1 overall seeds.

The offer includes four slices of its deep dish pepperoni pizza and a 20-ounce Pepsi product on Monday to anyone who goes to a participating location. To qualify, customers must place their order between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. local time.

Little Caesars is limiting the promotion to one combo per family and only while supplies last.
