Texas Tech’s Raider Red in Final Round of Capital One 2013 Mascot Challenge

Rob Snyder,

Texas Tech’s mascot is defending his title in the final round of the Capital One 2013 Mascot Challenge.

Raider Red is competing against the undefeated Rocky the Bull from the University of South Florida.

Raider Red lost to the bull in week three of the regular season, but defeated Sparty from Michigan State University in the semifinals.

Red also was defeated by East Carolina’s PeeDee the Pirate in week one and in week 10, lost to Wisconsin’s Bucky Badger.

The final round’s 25-point challenge is “If your mascot wins the Mascot Challenge, what should the first line of his acceptance speech be?” For 100 points, the challenge is “film or photograph yourself kissing any trophy.”

Each upload must use the #CapitalOneRaiderRed hashtag on Facebook or Twitter.

The mascot with the most votes at the end of the championship will be the Capital One National Mascot of the Year, and will be announced during the 2014 Capital One Bowl on January 1st, 2014.

The winner will be awarded a $20,000 scholarship to help fund their university mascot program. Each participant will receive $5,000 for their university mascot program.
