Buffalo, NY (AP)--New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is attending Princeton University's NCAA Tournament game, but he's not rooting for his state's Ivy League university.

Christie is sitting a few rows behind Notre Dame's bench Thursday in Buffalo and rooting for the Fighting Irish.

The Republican has been friends with Notre Dame coach Mike Brey since he worked at the University of Delaware. Christie graduated from the school.

Christie's daughter Sarah is a student manager for Notre Dame.

Christie's son Andrew graduated from Princeton last year and played for its baseball team.
