If there was an question that the SEC was home to the best collect of college football mascots in the land, then this should settle things once and for all.
Athlon Sports released the results of an expert poll on college football’s best mascots on Wednesday, and let’s just say that it was a good day for the league’s most famous team supporters.
Six of the league’s mascots were ranked in the Top 16 of the nation, according to the panel comprised of personalities such as former Alabama QB Greg McElroy and former South Carolina coach Lou Holtz.
The SEC took the top two spots in the voting, with LSU’s Mike the Tiger edging out Georgia’s Uga. The panel clearly liked the “live mascot” aspect to both of those classic SEC characters.
Here’s a look at where the SEC mascots landed on the list:
1. Mike the Tiger, LSU
2. Uga, Georgia
9. Big Al, Alabama
13. Smokey, Tennessee
15. War Eagle/Aubie, Auburn
16. Albert and Alberta, Florida
