WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama got only one pick wrong on the second full day of the NCAA tournament.

Obama is 29-3 through the second round after filling out a bracket for ESPN for the third straight year.

Obama correctly predicted two upsets Friday: 10th-seeded Florida State's victory over seventh-seeded Texas A&M, and No. 11 Marquette's win over No. 6 Xavier. His only mistake was picking No. 6 Georgetown to beat No. 11 VCU.

Fifteen of Obama's final 16 are still alive.

Obama selected Kansas to win it all.
