PHOENIX, Ariz. — Ahead of the No 2. Ohio State Buckeyes’ matchup against the No. 3 Clemson Tigers in Arizona on Saturday, an unexpected resident of Phoenix is providing some insight into the Fiesta Bowl’s potential outcome.

Orangutans at the Phoenix Zoo were tasked on Friday with deciding the victor of some upcoming bowl games by choosing between team shirts.

For the Fiesta Bowl, one of the orangutans, Rayma, appeared to be considering the Clemson shirt by taking it off its hanger and examining the hanger, until she cast it aside and put on the Ohio State shirt.

Will that prediction be correct? Only time will tell for sure.

The Fiesta Bowl will kick off at 8 p.m. at State Farm Stadium.
