Transcript for 'Master of March Madness' reveals secret to perfect bracket
And now to the person with the hottest hand in the men's tournament and he's not even playing. He's the only person to pick all games right in the first two rounds and we spoke to the master of March Madness overnight and T.J. Holmes is here with that. You the master? Oh, sorry. He spoke to the master. Master of nothing is what I'm called around here. No, this guy is 48-48 in picking games. Tens of millions submit he's the only one ever since we tracked this to get it perfect so what's his secret? He didn't overthink it. When Texas Tech took out Buffalo, that win shattered one of the last two remaining perfect NCAA brackets. Really disappointed but it happened. Reporter: Now out of tens of millions that were submitted there's only one perfect bracket still standing. It's really unbelievable. I didn't expect this at all. Reporter: It amongs to this guy, 40-year-old Gregg Nigel, he is the first to make it to the sweet 16 with an unblemished record. The odds of that happening 1 in 281 trillion. This was fourth bracket I filled out and it was really just for fun so I wasn't even checking it. I didn't know until today. Reporter: What's his secret. You can't watch every college game so you got to watch some bracketology and go with the teams you like. Reporter: This is the longest any bracket has remained perfect in the history of the tournament. 13 seed U.C. Irvine beat Kansas state for their first tournament and Mississippi state falling to liberty. He nailed that one too. The liberty flames are still dancing. Reporter: But with his luck and 15 games to go could this Michigan native really pull off total perfection? I have Tennessee and Gonzaga and then I picked Gonzaga to win it all. I'm pretty sure it's not going to remain perfect. I got skeptics. How did he pull it off? Stay with me here. This is the first time -- only the second time actually in 40 years that every one, two and three seed has made it to the sweet 16. Meaning, if all of you just picked the top seeds in your office pool, you would be winning it right now. This is rare for the tournament to not see that many upsets so a little luck but if he just picks the top seeds -- 1 in 281 trillion? It's never happened before. So this is the first time and we're seeing it -- George. I have some homework for you. What are the odds on getting a perfect bracket all the way Okay, the homework, like you said, let me get back to you. But we have bigger upsets in the women's tournament. Yes, we do. Thank you. The women's tournament, the 11 seed, Missouri state, the lady bears pulled off a big up set over Iowa state, the three seed. We don't see as many huge upsets but this was a huge one for this is the first time they've been to the sweet 16 since 2001. Yes, of course, a good celebration but the other big game, which is the one I was interested in last night, it is a good back and forth. UCLA Bruins, this was a great game, they beat the Maryland team there. A great back and forth. Watch the celebration -- we have that one from the locker room. There you go. They're doing the Kiki challenge. Great game. Wide open with the women's side. There are a lot of teams that could win it all. I love the coach celebrating. I'll get back to you.
