President Obama picks Arizona Wildcats to lose in Final Four

Mar 19, 2014, 5:24 PM | Updated: 5:24 pm

It looks like President Barack Obama is a fan of the Arizona Wildcats, at least to a point.

As part of his annual bracket, the Bracketer in Chief has a Final Four of Florida, Michigan State, Arizona and Louisville.

However, he has the Cardinals knocking off the Wildcats before falling to the Spartans in the championship game.

The president is not exactly going out on a limb with any of his picks, with a pair of number one seeds along with two of the more popular lower seeds.

And for what it’s worth, the noted basketball fan also has Arizona State knocking of Texas in the Round of 64 before losing to Michigan.

The entire bracket can be seen by clicking here.
