A study released in the this month’s issue of Sports Illustrated magazine reveals that colleges with “bird” mascots have done better than those with animals, fantasy figures, or humans for mascots. Here is how it shapes up

Mascot Winning Percentage
Birds 58%
Fantasy figures/inanimate objects/weather 52%
Canines and felines 47.9%
Other Beasts 46.5%
People 41.1%

According to this study alone which of the following teams should win?   What is the difference in the winning percentages for their mascot types?

Northern Iowa  Panthers vs Wyoming Cowboys

VCU Rams vs Ohio State Buckeyes (a buckeye is a tree nut)

Duke Blue Devils vs North Florida Ospreys
