Out of 17.3 million entries, not many perfect brackets remain in ESPN’s NCAA Tournament contest

If you have a perfect bracket in ESPN’s NCAA Tournament contest, you’re among the fortunate few.

Talk about brackets being busted. On Friday, ESPN Stats & Information revealed that only 6,306 perfect brackets remain out of 17.3 million entries in ESPN’s Tournament Challenge. That means only .04 percent of brackets are perfect as March’s madness carries on with action Friday.

Check out the announcement below:

It’s so hard to predict the NCAA Tournament. But it’s striking to see that 17.3 million figure whittled down to 6,306.

Likely, a few results in the South Region caused the most damage. No. 11 seed Loyola-Chicago beat No. 6 seed Miami (Fla.). Then later in the day, No. 13 seed Buffalo routed No. 4 seed Arizona.

Chances are, we’ll see multiple upsets happen Friday, so expect the number of perfect brackets to decline even more. All the unpredictable results make this event one of the country’s best sporting spectacles each year.

Enjoy your brackets while you can.
