NCAA Tournament 2019: There Are Zero Perfect Brackets Left

With the 2019 NCAA Tournament approaching the Elite 8, there are no longer any perfect brackets. Thanks to the No. 3 Purdue Boilermakers knocking off the No. 2 Tennessee Volunteers in overtime, Dr. Gregg Nigl’s record bracket is no longer intact.
Nigl had gone 48-of-48 through the first two rounds of the tournament, marking the best run in March Madness history.


Despite suffering his first loss, Nigl’s run was incredible.
The odds of having a perfect bracket into the Sweet 16? A stunning 1 in 281,474,976,710,656. Yes, that is 1 in 281.4 TRILLION.
The remaining schedule for the 2019 NCAA Tournament can be seen below.
