ATLANTA, GA (FOX5) -

You've no doubt heard about how smart dolphins are. Are they prescient when it comes to picking winning basketball teams? For UNLV's sake, we hope so.

Basketball icon Dick Vitale challenged dolphins at Atlanta's Georgia Aquarium to an NCAA Tournament bracket contest – Vitale's picks versus those of the dolphins.

Regardless of the winner, it's good news for UNLV. The dolphins picked the Runnin' Rebels to go to the Final Four.

Before you scoff, know that the dolphins have had some success in the past.

If Vitale loses, he'll serve as the dolphins' personal servant for a day, feeding them, cleaning their tank and catering to their every need.
