Forget preparation, game plan or “The Process.” A panda has given Alabama all the confidence it needs for its Peach Bowl matchup with Washington.
As part of the promotion for the Peach Bowl, Zoo Atlanta had an adult male panda named Yang Yang pick the winner of the Peach Bowl between Alabama and Washington. The Crimson Tide is a heavy favorite. Washington head coach Chris Petersen has called Alabama “probably the best college team I’ve seen.”
However, the Crimson Tide is not taking the Huskies lightly. Head coach Nick Saban is reportedly combing through years of tape from Petersen’s past teams. He doesn’t want any of Washington’s trick plays to catch his team off guard.
Yang Yang had to pick between two boxes, one for each team, which both contained a biscuit for him to eat. So who does he like in the College Football Playoff semifinal?
He’s going with the Crimson Tide. Because pandas are smart.
We got a Semifinal in Atlanta… ???
