If your bracket isn’t busted after Day One of March Madness, well, I find that hard to believe.

Getting all 64 picks correct has been done in the past, but it’s nearly impossible, and after what transpired during the first day of the round of 64, you’d be hard pressed to find a perfect bracket. The tournament got off to an entertaining start with an overtime thriller between University of Rhode Island and University of Oklahoma, but the real thriller came towards the end of the day.

The No. 13 seed University of Buffalo Bulls were set to face the No. 4 University of Arizona Wildcats, who have been highly touted as one of the most-talented teams in the country. While that may have been true, the Bulls didn’t care, and bullied the Wildcats in the paint for most of the evening. Now, whether you were rooting for one or the other, Oakland Raiders defensive end Khalil Mack made who he was supporting very clear, considering he’s a former Bull.

The former Defensive Player of the Year took to Twitter to share his support.

He even predicted the upset.

When the clock struck zero, and the Bulls had defeated the Wildcats mightily in a 89-68 finish, Mack celebrated with musician Alexander DeLeon.

Mack even poked a little fun at a member of the Bay Area media.

Whether the Bulls continue to advance in the tournament or not, their victory over Arizona was a statement.
