Zoo Atlanta panda picks Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl winner

Vegas may favor Alabama by two touchdowns over Washington in the New Year’s Eve Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta, but the real pick comes from Zoo Atlanta’s Yang Yang.

Seems unscientific but keep in mind that Yang Yang could be the authority on this as his favorite things are Tabasco (crimson?) and lavender (purple?).
