Siri jumps on SFA bandwagon

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

After clinching a fourth-straight conference championship and a so-far undefeated conference record, even Siri is claiming the SFA Lumberjacks basketball team is her favorite.

Try it. Ask the program on the Apple iPhone "who is your favorite college basketball team?"

Siri's response is "I always like to root for the underdog. I guess that makes me a fan of Stephen F. Austin right now."

Siri likely picked the 'Jacks because Siri likes underdogs. She uses that answer for every sport.

Siri has likely picked SFA as an "underdog" because the team received one vote for the college top 25 this week, making it the last team in the rankings it uses for its data. When it brings up the answer, it shows SFA as last in the standings.

SFA takes on Northwestern in Natchitoches, La. at 7:30 p.m. before wrapping up the season at Sam Houston Saturday.
