The biggest football game is just days away, and a couple of Florida manatees in Sarasota have made their predictions.

The Carolina Panthers will face the Denver Broncos at Levi's Stadium this Sunday in Santa Clara, Calif.

At the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium, logos of the two teams were place in the manatees' tank.  One manatee named Buffett swam toward the Broncos' logo.

Aquarium staffers said Buffett has done this for nine years and has been right eight times out of nine.

But before Broncos fans dream about Peyton Manning and the rest of the team bringing home the Vince Lombardi trophy, Buffett's manatee pal, Hugh, picked the Panthers to win.

We'll just have to wait until Sunday to see which manatee was correct.
