The SEC finally picked up a win with South Carolina defeating North Carolina. 38-21

SC has a rooster for a mascot; they are known as the Gamecocks and their cheer is "Go Cocks!"
here's Cocky

NC is the Tarheel state, so named because they produced a lot of tar, terpentine and other wood products for the naval industry. The workers often went barefoot and would get the tar on their feet.
The football mascot is Ramses the Ram. They had had a running back back in the 1920's who was described as a battering ram so the students got the school to pony up 24 dollars so they could buy a suitable ram mascot.

Michigan State's mascot is "Sparty the Spartan"
Image

University of Pittsburgh has "Roc the Panther"
Image

Tennessee has the Volunteer as a mascot but also Smokey the Bluetick Coonhound.

ROLL TIDE!!!

Alabama's mascot is Big Al, the elephant. They actually had a live elephant in the 1940's but that got too expensive so they rented them out for homecoming day into the 1960's. When I was at UA, a female student wore the outfit and was responsible for its maintenance. But Big Al doesn't speak so nobody can tell who's inside.

The Team name, Crimson Tide, evolved from their earlier nickname, the 'Thin Red Line', which is what some sports writer had called their defensive line. But after one memorable game, the thin red line was more like a "red tidal wave", and they became the Crimson Tide.

Cincinnati became the Bearcats after one of their players, named Leonard "Teddy" Baehr led the team to victory over their rival, the Kentucky Wildcats. The cheerleaders shouted that they had a Baehr Cat on their team. And so the nickname Bearcat stuck.

And Georgia demolished Michigan.

So, a rematch between Alabama and Georgia.

After going 4-0 yesterday, I'm at 22 wins, 12 losses.

The Barstool Arizona Bowl is canceled but the Central Michigan Chippewas will take Miami's place in the Sun Bowl against Washington State Cougars.

I had picked WSU and CMU to win their bowl games so in a head to head contest I'm going to go with the Chippewas of Central Michigan.

CMU technically does not have a mascot so here is a picture of some fancy Chippewa boots

So, no Barstool Arizona Bowl.

I see that Rutgers is going to take Texas A&M's place at the Gator Bowl.

They went 5-7 on the year while Wake Forest was second in their conference and is ranked 17 in the nation.

My vote was on Texas A&M but I'll switch it to Wake Forest against Rutgers.

I'll take Wake Forest too.

Here was the change to the Gator Bowl. Rutgers made a game out of it in the first half despite getting a very late invite due to Texas A&M dropping out. Wake Forest won, 38-10

Kansas State Wildcats beat the Louisiana State Bayou Bengals. I had picked LSU so my record is now 26-13.

Everybody that competed should total up their score and see where we stand.

Smellody, I counted 25 wins for you but please double check. First place

Jason_Recliner had 18 wins. Third place

Nimbleboy had 23 wins. Second place.

Bugger. Choosing teams for their comedic value doesn't work :-(

Congratulations Mr. Battle, and also Dr. Smells and Nimbleboy for running a very close second and third place. Second best competition this summer, after the Ashes.
