Jimmy Fallon went to the pooches to predict a winner of March Madness, otherwise known as the NCAA Basketball Tournament, which is down to the final four teams. Accuracy notwithstanding, he gets points for cuteness.

There are no surprises with three of the four teams, Duke Blue Devils, Wisconsin Badgers and Kentucky Wildcats. But the Michigan State Spartans area a Cinderella team.

Duke, Kentucky and Wisconsin are all No. 1 seeds in the 64-team tournament. They were expected to meet in the Final Four round, which will determine the two finalists for the national title.

Michigan State, on the other hand, was seeded No. 7 after coming off a lackluster season. But the Spartans played inspired basketball to get by Oklahoma, a No. 3 seed and Louisville, a No. 4 seed.

The final four teams will go at on Saturday (Apr. 4) with Duke against Michigan State at 6:09 p.m. on TBS and Kentucky against Wisconsin 40 minutes after the end of the first game.

The winners will play for the championship Monday (Apr. 6) night.

Fallon made the puppies work to make their prediction. He set up four bowls of dog food to represent the four teams. Then, he turned loose seven pups to sniff out the Kibbles. The dish with the most pups eating was deemed the winner.

Before he turned them loose, Fallon laid down the ground rules: clean eating, no peeing and no butt sniffing.
