Predicting the winner of a bowl game between two evenly matched teams can be almost impossible… at least for humans. But what about for dolphins?
At Miami Seaquarium on Friday, someone set up two balls, one with a Michigan logo and one with a Florida State logo and asked a dolphin named Flipper to swim toward the ball representing the team that will win the Orange Bowl on Dec. 30.
Flipper didn’t hesitate at all, darting right for the Michigan ball.

The Orange Bowl’s Twitter account claims that Flipper is 5-for-5 in predicting Orange Bowl champions, so maybe this is a good sign for the Wolverines. After all, they say dolphins are the smartest animals.
