Yang Yang, a 20-year-old male giant panda at Zoo Atlanta, has decided that the University of Central Florida will lose to Auburn in the 50th Anniversary Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.

What does this big dumb panda know about college football, you ask? Well, I'll have you know that Yang Yang completes his annual ritual of picking game day winners the same way most sports analysts do: by eating a big-ass cardboard box. 
Yang Yang is looking to keep his perfect streak alive since successfully picking the right cardboard box for last year's game between Alabama and Washington.

The No. 12 UCF Knights and the No. 7 Auburn Tigers will meet at 12:30 p.m. ET on New Year’s Day at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
