Due to some strange coincidence, I have attended schools for the last 10 years where the mascot has been the ever-popular Eagle. There was no planning, no feeling of loyalty. In fact, I don't even particularly like birds or care much about the sports teams they represent. But sometimes I get jealous of students who go to schools with mascots that are a little more...unique. If you too are curious about mascots that are a little more creative than your typical birds, fearsome predators, or ridiculous puns, take this quiz to match some of the weirdest college mascots with the schools they call home.
