They say an elephant never forgets the past, but Florida State football fans are hoping this particular pachyderm can predict the future.

A Ringling Bros. elephant predicted that No. 1 Florida State will beat No. 2 Auburn in the BCS National Championship, using its trunk to lift a Seminoles flag in front of the Forum in downtown Tampa this morning.

It’s unclear if the elephant was taking the point spread into consideration — Las Vegas oddsmakers currently have Florida State listed as an 8.5-point favorite.

The BCS National Championship game will air Monday night on ESPN. Kickoff is at 8:30.

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus is performing at the Forum through Sunday.
