That giant ripping sound you hear? It’s an entire nation tearing up their brackets at once. A 78–71 shocker.

In the biggest March Madness upset thus far, 14th-seed Mercer — a tiny private college out of Macon, Ga. — toppled third-seeded Duke in a 78 to 71 shocker.

The Blue Devils of Durham, N.C., fell to the Bears in a bracket-busting game that knocked Duke out of the NCAA tournament, the second time they’ve been ejected in the first round in the last three years.

Mercer will next face the winner of today’s Tennessee–Massachusetts game.
