Zoo Atlanta’s Yang Yang the Panda Makes His Pick For Peach Bowl

For the second year in a row, Zoo Atlanta had one of its beloved residents, Yang Yang the Panda, make his pick for the game.

Yang Yang, a 20-year-old male giant panda at Zoo Atlanta, predicted the winner of the 50th Anniversary Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl between No. 12 UCF and No. 7 Auburn.

The giant panda entered his habitat on December 13, 2017, to find two identical boxes painted with team logos, and made his “pick.” He could maintain a perfect record in Panda Pick ‘Em 2017; in 2016, he correctly picked the Alabama Crimson Tide to defeat the Washington Huskies.

Yang Yang’s pick will be put to the test when the Tigers and Knights square off at 12:30 p.m. ET on Jan. 1 on ESPN.
