Here are the people's Final Four, the most popular teams picked to reach the semifinals from the millions of brackets created by people around the world in our Capitol One Bracket Challenge Game:
|West||2- seed UNC||33.34%|
The picks aren’t too shocking: three 1 seeds and a 2 seed.
Villanova garnered the most confidence of the four, being picked to reach the national semifinals in more than half (52.67 percent) of all brackets. The Wildcats’ top competition in the East comes from 2-seed Purdue, 3-seed Texas Tech, and 4-seed Wichita State.
Villanova was also the team picked to win the national championship the most, taking the title in 14.6 percent of all BCG brackets.
Defending champion North Carolina was the only non-1 seed to crack the People’s Final Four. The Tar Heels were the No. 5 overall seed, just one spot behind 1-seed Xavier, who sits atop the West region, where UNC resides.
