Yang Yang, a panda from Zoo Atlanta, makes his prediction for Peach Bowl winner
There are probably quite a few Georgia fans who have been visitors at Zoo Atlanta at some point, considering Athens is less than two hours away. So, they may have seen Yang Yang, one of the pandas at the zoo, during their trip there.
On Monday, Zoo Atlanta tweeted a video in which Yang Yang made a prediction for the upcoming Peach Bowl, which is set to feature Georgia and Cincinnati going head-to-head on New Year’s Day. And fortunately for Bulldogs fans, Yang Yang didn’t let them down.
The panda had two boxes to choose from (one with each of the schools’ respective logos), and whichever one he clawed at and destroyed would be his pick for the Peach Bowl. Sure enough, he went straight to the Georgia box, destroyed it and chowed down on the food that was inside:
Georgia is making its first appearance in the Peach Bowl since 2006, when the game was still held at the Georgia Dome. The contest has been held at Mercedes-Benz Stadium since the 2017 season.
The Bulldogs may have Yang Yang’s support, but they could face a challenge in the Bearcats, who enter with a 9-0 record after winning the AAC championship. Of course, Georgia has had a strong season, too, going 7-2, with its only two losses coming against Alabama and Florida, the two teams that reached the SEC Championship Game.
Georgia and Cincinnati are set to kick off on Friday at noon ET on ESPN.
