2 percent of brackets have both teams
By ESPN.com staff
Only 2 percent of the 6.45 million Tournament Challenge brackets got both Louisville and Ohio State to reach the Final Four. That would be because just 6.8 percent of brackets had Louisville in the Final Four (highest of the No. 4 seeds, though), compared to 34.4 percent for Ohio State (even more than No. 1 seed Syracuse, which was picked to advance in 22.8 percent of brackets).
There are three brackets (here, here and here) tied for the lead with 1,010 points, and each has a different team winning the championship. (Note: The winner of the grand prize isn't necessarily the entry with the most points at the end of the tournament, but rather a drawing of entries that score in the top 1 percent of the game.)
President Obama's bracket
The president got Ohio State into the Final Four but missed Louisville. His other two Final Four teams (Kentucky and North Carolina) are still alive. He has 780 points, ranked in the 98.4 percentile overall.
