The Leader of the Free World is picking the No.11-seed Texas Longhorns to go down to the No. 6-seed Cincinnati Bearcats in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. President Obama fills out his bracket every year with ESPN's Andy Katz.

Last season he picked the Kansas Jayhawks to beat the Ohio State Buckeyes in the championship game, Of course, neither team made it to the Final Four. This year's Final Four prediction by President Obama is as follows:

No.1 Kentucky Wildcats vs. No. 2 Missouri Tigers

No.1 North Carolina Tar Heels vs. No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes

Obama admitted that he's a "sucker for North Carolina" when filling out his bracket on ESPN. Just a few upsets Obama picked were No. 10 Xavier defeating No. 7 Notre Dame in the South region on Friday and No. 11 NC State over No. 3 Georgetown in the Midwest region.
