Everyone loves pizza, especially when it's free.

In the midst of March Madness, Little Caesars tweeted that if a No. 16 seeded team beats a No. 1 seeded team, they will give away free a free lunch combo to everyone. On Friday, March 16, the University of Virginia, seed No. 1, lost to the University of Maryland-Baltimore County, seed No. 16. Now April 2 is free pizza day.

Little Caesar's tweeted out on the night of the game 'Free Lunch Combo because crazy happened!"


So now thanks to UMBC, we are all getting free '$5 HOT-N-READY lunch combos' from Little Caesars on April 2. The combo includes four slices of 'Deep! Deep! Dish' pepperoni pizza and a 20 ounce Pepsi product, according to their contest page.

The Hudson Valley is home to a few Little Caesars restaurants:

  • 737 Main St, Poughkeepsie, NY 12603
  • 600 Broadway, Newburgh, NY 12550
  • 148-150 Wickham Ave, Middletown, NY 10940

The free pizza is available from 11 a.m.- 1 p.m. on April 2, at participating locations.
