Oklahoma is the favored team in their NCAA Tournament opener Thursday in Spokane, Washington, but President Obama picked North Dakota State to beat the Sooners in his bracket.

The Sooners worked out Wednesday afternoon in Spokane and were asked about the leader of the free world picking their opponent, a #12 seed, to beat them.

The North Dakota State coach is taking it all in stride, enjoying every moment at the Big Dance.

The Sooners and Bison will meet at 6:27 pm central time on Thursday.
