The fact that Julia Louis-Dreyfus' son helped her alma mater, Northwestern, make it into the NCAA March Madness bracket for the first time was a victory in itself. But then the No. 8 seed in the West actually won. Cameras caught Louis-Dreyfus, 56, looking awestruck and mouthing the words "Oh my god!" after Northwestern defeated Vanderbilt 68-66 in the first round of the NCAA tournament Thursday in Salt Lake City, reports People.

The Wildcats, with Louis-Dreyfus' 19-year-old son Charlie Hall on the roster, next face Gonzaga on Saturday. The Chicago Tribune notes Gonzaga was rated No. 4 overall by the NCAA tournament selection committee; the highest-ranked team Northwestern squared off against this season was Butler, at No. 13. A post at SB Nation predicts Gonzaga is going to win it all. (Read more Julia Louis-Dreyfus stories.)
