Never... furthermore no team seeded below #4 has won it since the field expanded to 24 in 2013. Pretty much anyone outside of the top 8, and you could even argue the top 4, is just filler. For the top 8 the playoffs are the same format with a 24 team field as it is with an 16 team field except that the top 8 can get a bye instead of playing on the Thanksgiving weekend wasteland.
