Joe Biden Picks Penn State Hoops To Defeat Texas A&M

This is March, folks.

As college basketball fans around the world fill in their brackets, President Joe Biden joined in on the fun and picked Penn State to defeat Texas A&M in Thursday night’s Round-of-64 showdown.

Despite having Penn State advancing, Biden has No. 2-seeded Texas taking down the Nittany Lions in the Round of 32 with the Longhorns advancing all the way to the Final Four. Biden ultimately picked the Arizona Wildcats to take it all in Houston.

In addition to Biden, former President Barack Obama also has the Nittany Lions prevailing against the Aggies Thursday night.

Obama also has Penn State falling to Texas in the next round, with Duke winning it all in its first season without Coach K.

Penn State will make its first March Madness appearance since 2011 when it faces off against Texas A&M at 9:55 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 16. The Nittany Lions are coming off a close, tough 67-65 loss to Purdue in the Big Ten Tournament Championship game.
