March Madness: Autistic Teen has Perfect Bracket

Ad Feedback

Round three of March Madness kicked off Thursday with a number of big upsets in the first two rounds.

Many people's brackets are completely shot, but a 17-year- old in Illinois is an exception.

Going into Thursday, Alex Hermann was sitting on a perfect bracket. Hermann, who is also autistic, picked the right winners in all of the first 48 games.

That's nearly impossible.

In fact, the odds of having a perfect bracket leading into the Sweet 16 are one in 13 million. That means you have a better chance of winning the lottery, twice.

Hermann said he has been studying the teams all season.

"I watch all the games on TV when they go on the air until when the last one is done playing on the West Coast and all that," he said.

In case your wondering, Hermann picks Purdue to beat Kansas State in the National Championship game.
