He may be a small town pig in the big city, but don't call him Babe.

He's Patch the Pig, and when he's not competing at the rodeo, falling asleep or stealing a bite wherever he can, he's got his money on the Kansas Jayhawks to make it to the NCAA Final Four.

Patch had a phenomenal first day in the bracket challenge. He correctly picked the two biggest upsets of the day, as Richmond knocked off Vanderbilt and Morehead nipped Louisville with a last-second shot  in the Southwest Regional.

Zoe the corgi also had a good day, with a 4-0 record. She picked winners San Diego State, Temple, Cincinnati and UConn in the West Regional.

Sushi the fish went 1-1 in the East Regional, correctly picking Kentucky, which narrowly beat Princeton, but missing out on West Virginia's win over Clemson. She picked the Tigers, probably because she doesn't know what a Mountaineer is. (Neither do we.)

Corfu the cat got off to a rough start with 4-4 record in the Southeast Regional, where more games were played. And his underdog favorite to make the Final Four, Belmont, fell to Wisconsin, so his bracket isn't looking good.
