TUCSON, Ariz. – If you think Wilbur is the best mascot in college athletics, then now is the time to make your feelings known. Wilbur, who is on Twitter @OfficialWilbur, and 15 other mascots from across the country are competing against each other in the Capital One Mascot Challenge.
Arizona fans have three ways to support Wilbur this year. First, you can visit the Challenge website here and click ‘Vote Now’ to earn one point. There are also weekly 25-point challenges and 100-point challenges that, if executed, can help push Wilbur over the top. Make sure to use the hashtag #CapitalOneWilbur when submitting the 25-point and 100-point challenges on Facebook or Twitter.
Mascots are paired in head-to-head matchups, which will produce weekly winners. This week, Wilbur is up against Virginia Tech’s mascot Hokiebird. The eight mascots with the most wins at the end of the regular season will move on to the playoff voting phase. The head-to-head matchups will continue until there is a winner.
