Pandas can be Peach Bowl pundits, too. (Say that five times fast!)
Yes, it’s almost bowl season, which means cool-and-quirky activities surrounding the games. On Wednesday, the Peach Bowl joined the fun by publishing a video on Twitter that features Zoo Atlanta’s Yang Yang making his pick for the winner of the game between Auburn and UCF on Jan. 1 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
The choice: Auburn. Check out how the selection was made in the clip below.

The good news for Auburn is that Yang Yang selected Alabama to beat Washington last season in the Peach Bowl, which turned out to be spot-on after the Crimson Tide won 24-7 to advance to the national championship game. This is the second Peach Bowl prediction for Yang Yang, so it’s up to the Tigers to keep the panda’s undefeated record alive.
Auburn enters the game with a 10-3 record, and UCF is 12-0. The Tigers will make another trip to Atlanta after losing to Georgia at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in the SEC Championship Game on Dec. 2.
