Teams advancing to the Sweet 16 of the 2014 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. (

March Madness has lived up to the hype in the 2014 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament with a number of upsets already in the books as the opening round of 64 wraps up Sunday.

The biggest surprise of the tourney thus far has been 11th-seeded Dayton, who knocked off 6th-seeded Ohio State before upending 2nd-seeded Syracuse to punch its ticket to the Sweet 16.

The 10th-seeded Stanford Cardinals made it out of the South Region after eliminating New Mexico in a minor upset before shocking 2nd-seeded Kansas 60-57.

Other teams that have escaped the first weekend include the tourney's top-seeded Florida Gators, three four-seeds in Michigan State out of the East Region, San Diego State out of the West and the defending national champs Louisville out of the Midwest.

A 7th-seeded Connecticut Huskies team took down 2nd-seeded Villanova to advance while Michigan and Wisconsin, both two-seeds, survived to play another round.

Wichita State, the top seed in the Midwest, had its perfect season gutted by 8th-seeded Kentucky in a 78-76 loss, setting up a Sweet 16 matchup between two of college basketball's biggest coaching stars in Rick Pitino and John Calipari.

Full list of teams remaining in the tournament can be seen below.
