Vote for Cocky in 2012 Capital One Mascot Challenge Playoffs

All fans of the University of South Carolina need to vote for Cocky.

We’re down to the final battle in the 2012 Capital One Mascot Challenge playoffs and the championship round is a dream matchup between the top two heavyweights: Cocky from South Carolina and Texas Tech’s Raider Red.

Cocky is looking for a title to cap off an undefeated season, while Raider Red is aiming to knock him off of his perch and finish an impressive one-loss season with a championship.

The competition will culminate with the winner being announced at the Capital One Bowl game on Jan. 1 at 1pm EST on ABC. The winner will take home the coveted title of Capital One’s National Mascot of the Year and $20,000 towards their school’s mascot program.

Ultimately, the mascots’ playoff fate lies in the hands of the fans. There are three ways fans can take action and vote.
