The Man With A Perfect Bracket Has Been Identified

The Spun NCAA Tournament bracket.

Every basketball fan took part in making their picks for the NCAA Tournament, but saw them busted within the first weekend of action. Well, that doesn't include one man that still has a perfect bracket heading into the Sweet 16.

Gregg Nigl of Ohio actually got every prediction correct for the first two rounds of March Madness. This includes picking No. 12 Oregon to make the second weekend and Liberty to upset Mississippi State.

The 40-year-old neuropsychologist didn't realize just how significant his bracket is to the sports world. During his conversation with the NCAA, Nigl admit that he wasn't going to pay much attention to his submission at first.

While the odds of a perfect bracket are extremely slim, it's not impossible for Nigl to crack the code. In fact, the teams he has making the Final Four are quite realistic choices.

Nigl believes Duke, Gonzaga, Virginia and Kentucky will make the trip to U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

His championship matchup features Gonzaga taking on Virginia, and the winner of that showdown would be the Bulldogs.

If Nigl is going to keep the dream alive for the Elite Eight, then he'll need the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds in each region to win their respective games. He'll probably also need PJ Washington to return to Kentucky so it can be at full strength.

We'll see if Nigl can become the first person to ever have a perfect bracket.
