It’s official. Everyone’s brackets are now busted.

With Gonzaga and Arizona both losing on Thursday, three of the top four teams have been eliminated from NCAA Tournament play. The Wildcats and Bulldogs join Baylor as No. 1 seeds to receive an early exit.

Arizona and Gonzaga entered March as the championship favorites according to Las Vegas. For that reason, those two teams were picked often in March Madness brackets. Unfortunately, neither was able to survive the second weekend of play, and they’ll both be watching the next few rounds from home.

Instead, we’ll get to see a few underdogs take their chances at a title run.

Miami and Iowa State face off Friday, ensuring that at least one double digit seed will make the Elite Eight. Saint Peter’s is still alive after taking down Kentucky and Murray State as a 15-seed.

Arkansas, Houston, and Providence are still kicking, too.

Of course, there are still a few blue bloods remaining. UCLA and UNC will face off Friday with an Elite Eight trip at stake. And then there’s Kansas, who’s the last No. 1 seed standing.

It’s been a wild month of March.

The chaos that’s been witnessed over the last week and a half has been great for viewers, but downright awful for brackets.

Social Media Reacts As Gonzaga, Arizona Bust Everyone’s Brackets

The two upsets on Thursday night have wreaked havoc on college basketball bettors. Gonzaga, in particular, entered tonight’s matchup as a near 10-point favorite.

With the Wildcats and Bulldogs being the two heaviest favorites to take home the title, social media is having a night with bracket busting results.

Take a look below.

The next few rounds of play should be fun to watch. Maybe we’ll all enjoy a little more now that our championship contenders have all been eliminated.
