COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Your bracket is busted. But for two entries out of the tens of millions that entered March Madness pools, the bracket is still perfect through 41 NCAA Tournament games.

The NCAA bracket tracker says only two perfect brackets remain two across all major online bracket games, including Yahoo, ESPN, CBS, Fox, Sports Illustrated and the NCAA’s own bracket game. It’s the longest streak of correct bracket picks, breaking the reported record of 39 games, which happened in 2017.

That means picking seeded upsets like No. 12 Murray State and No. 13 UC Irvine to advance, when millions more went poof. The day is young, with seven games left and plenty of potential upsets looming.

The two brackets left are also split on one game: One has No. 3 seed Texas Tech, the other has sixth-seeded Buffalo.

The NCAA says the odds of a perfect bracket are 1 in 9.2 quintillion — so bettors, take the under.
