2012 NCAA Collegiate Mascot Animals

Do You Know Your Collegiate Mascots?

College football season comes to an exciting finish on Monday when the undefeated Louisiana State University Tigers face off against the second-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. Undoubtedly, the stadium will be filled to the brim with rowdy fans sporting their team's colors, but perhaps the most ferocious member of the audience will be Mike VI, LSU's Bengali-Siberian tiger mix. While most teams opt for humans dressed in animal costumes as their rallying mascot, several colleges boast live animal representatives to help whip fans into a frenzy. Do you know who they are? Test your knowledge with this quiz!
