UConn upset Florida 63-53 Saturday in the Final Four and will advance to the National Title game. The victory showed just how underrated UConn was coming into March Madness.
Entering the annual NCAA tournament UConn was ranked number seven. Florida was the number one overall seed and looked like the team to beat all March.
If Florida was the team to beat, UConn was the team that just wouldn’t be beat. An underdog nearly the entire tournament, the school is now one game away from accomplishing the impossible.
UConn lost its final game of the regular season by more than 30 points. If they win the National Title, they would be the first team do so after such a loss.
Fans took to Twitter to share their feelings on the upset, some obviously happy and others not so much.

If Kentucky wins tomorrow, it will be the first time in tournament history a seven seed has played an eight seed for the title.
With the heavy favorite that was Florida knocked out, a lot of brackets just ended too. That is if there were many left to begin with.
UConn advancing to the National Title is just one of a number of March Madness upsets that destroyed brackets this year. Of course, that’s good news for UConn.
