Md. zoo's chimps to predict Super Bowl winner

BALTIMORE (AP) - The chimpanzees at The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore are going to be predicting the winner of Sunday's Super Bowl. 

The zoo says that on Friday keepers will put up banners for the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers in the chimps' enclosure. The zoo says its 11 chimpanzees will then be allowed in and be allowed to rip down the banners. The zoo says whichever banner the chimps tear down first will be the team they've predicted to win.
The zoo has made banners for the chimps to tear down before on occasions like Halloween and Valentine's Day, but they've never been used as a prediction tool. 
The chimps will also be getting junior size footballs in Ravens colors to play with on Friday.
