Oregon just upset Oklahoma State in the 2013 NCAA tournament brackets. The upset by Oregon is the biggest of the tournament so far, as the Ducks came in as a No. 12 seed up against the No. 5 seed of the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The game played out Thursday afternoon (March 21), with Oregon jumping out to a big 11-point halftime lead over the 24-8 team.

Many fans of the Ducks might not even consider this to be an upset, as the team is hot off winning the Pac-12 tournament and actually came into the seeding with a 26-8 overall record. This win might prove that the committee deciding upon the seeds may have really miscalculated this portion of the brackets.
Oregon will not play against Saint Louis, which beat up on New Mexico State (64-44) earlier in the day. Saint Louis has the No. 4 seed in the Midwest Region, so things aren’t going to get any easier for the Ducks. A win in the third round could lead to a date with Louisville in the Sweet Sixteen. Louisville is the No. 1 seed from the Midwest Region and the selection of many experts to win the championship.
The Oregon upset of Oklahoma State is definitely the most notable showing from the tournament so far, especially as so many early bids came up short by underdog teams. Now the Ducks will try to continue that run with a game against Saint Louis on Saturday (March 23).
