There have been several upsets in the NCAA Tournament so far. Few, though, are as surprising as Auburn's loss on Sunday night.

The Tigers, the No. 2 seed in the Midwest Region, were a popular pick to win the whole thing. Bruce Pearl's team has a potential No. 1 overall NBA Draft pick and a host of surrounding talent.

However, Auburn was taken down by No. 10 seed Miami on Sunday night.

Auburn fell to Miami in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, as the Hurricanes are off to the Sweet 16 and the Tigers are going home.

College basketball fans are pretty surprised.

Miami and Iowa State are set to meet in the Sweet 16 on Thursday or Friday night.

The full schedule for the Sweet 16 will be out later tonight.
