Big Red Competing For Nation's Best Mascot

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- For the tenth time, Big Red is squaring off against 15 other top mascots in the country to compete for the Capital One mascot crown.

Though it's highly recognizable Big Red's never won the event. The school would like for that to change this year, but either way the challenge is a great way to get the WKU name across the country.

"Big Red is a national brand. Being involved in this campaign, big red is in households across the country every week. Big Red represents the spirit of WKU, not just the athletic department, but the University as a whole," said WKU Athletic Marketing Director, Zack McKay.

If Big Red wins the season long competition, not only will WKU get bragging rights, The Big Red Mascot Program will also receive $20,000.
