Another No. 1 seed has bitten the dust. Fourth-seeded processed food Lucky Charms defeated traditional breakfast standby Scrambled Eggs with a buzzer beater to advance to the Elite 8 of the Blog Madness Food Fight, joining second-seeded Biscuits & Gravy as the last remaining foods in the Breakfast Region fighting for a final four spot. Biscuits & Gravy beat out sentimental favorite Bacon in a game that despite not being an upset surprised some.
The dream run for the 15th-seeded Salad Bar came to a screeching halt thanks to the sixth-seeded Chicken Parm, which became the lowest seed to advance to the Elite 8 with a comfortable 19-10 win. Chicken Parm will face top-seeded Turkey Dinner, which like Lunch regional one-seed Pretzel Roll Sandwiches had little challenge booking a spot in the regional final.
Pretzel Roll Sandwiches will be in the powerhouse game of the Elite 8 with a match-up against No. 2 seed Chicken Patties. Lunch in the dining hall might never be the same after this one is over. The Dessert/Snack region features a match just as tantalizing between the fifth-seeded Dirt and the the third-seeded Chipwiches. Expect the final score lines to tighten as voters try to make up their mind between even competitors.
