But there is a silver lining - and it's that Little Caesars is giving away free lunch combos because of UMBC's history-making win. Those in line at 1 p.m. who have yet to order will have to pay for their pizza.
Little Caesars promised to give out a free lunch combo before the game if "crazy happens", and now they plan to make good on that promise. People will get a 4-slice Deep!Deep! dish pizza with pepperoni and one 20 ounce Pepsi product.
Little Caesars on Thursday vowed to give away free lunch combos on April 2, "if insane happens".
For the full set of rules, go to the Little Caesar's website. No calling, waiting or online ordering necessary.
