Bill Clinton, George W. Bush watch NCAA championship game together

Former President Bill Clinton and former President George W. Bush sat side by side in AT&T Stadium Monday night to watch the NCAA championship game between the Connecticut Huskies and the Kentucky Wildcats.

The pair of former presidents were watching the game from a luxury box in the Arlington, Texas stadium belonging to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, according to the Associated Press. Adding some more star power to the mix, they were seated next to Jones, former First Lady Laura Bush, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett and Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

The crowd at the game applauded for the former presidents when they were shown on the jumbotron during a break in the first half of the game.

After the game, Mr. Clinton posted a picture to Twitter from the game with Jones, former college basketball coach Eddie Sutton, University of Arkansas athletics director Jeff Long, and former Arkansas head coach Nolan Richardson. Clinton wrote on Twitter, "Great night watching #NCAAFinals with @JeffLongUA, Coach Richardson, Coach Sutton, Jerry Jones & 43," with "43" referencing Mr. Bush, the 43rd U.S. president.
