The Watt household was divided on Friday night when Wisconsin, the alma mater of new Arizona Cardinals defensive end J.J. Watt, faced off against North Carolina, the alma mater of Chicago Red Stars forward Kealia Watt. Ultimately, J.J. got the better of wife Kealia, with his Badgers pulling out a 85-62 win in the first round of the 2021 NCAA men's tournament.

And he made sure to have some fun before, during and after the game.

First, he had their dogs pick a side, dressing them in Wisconsin red and Carolina blue:

At halftime, with Wisconsin up big, Kealia joked about J.J. getting "cocky."

And then, J.J. tweeted a GIF of Michael Jordan's "The ceiling is the roof" speech at UNC, continuing his expert troll job.

But did Kealia get the last laugh? Tar Heels fans might say yes, but J.J.? Not so fast.
