Barack Obama reveals his NCAA tournament brackets with a surprising men's champion

Barack Obama reveals his NCAA tournament brackets with a surprising men's champion

The former President has each of the Big Ten's four teams winning at least one game. He has not said whether or not he will fill out a bracket for this year's tournament.

The 28-5 Aggies are 5-point underdogs as of Wednesday to the 23-9 Tigers of the Atlantic Coast Conference.

His Final Four consists of #1 Virginia vs #2 North Carolina and #1 Villanova against #3 Michigan State, with the NCAA title game pitting the Virginia Cavaliers against Tom Izzo's Michigan State Spartans. Then he has Michigan State topping Villanova in the national semifinals and Virginia, the tournament's top seed, for the national championship.

In the women's bracket, Obama is predicting a rematch of last year's final: UConn vs. Mississippi State.


Obama also has UConn, Notre Dame, Mississippi State and Louisville in the women's bracket, with UConn beating Mississippi State in the final game. Last year, Obama correctly picked North Carolina and UConn as the men's and women's champions.

It's unclear whether President Donald Trump will fill out a bracket.

Oh, and if you were wondering, President Trump opted not to fill out a bracket previous year.
