The University of Toledo’s Rocky Rocket has the chance to be a part of the Capital One Mascot Challenge — but he needs your help.

Rocky the Rocket

Rocky is in first place on the list of write-ins for next year’s Capital One Mascot Challenge — a yearly competition between the mascots of eligible NCAA schools. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the challenge.

Each year, voters decide the top 16 college mascots in the country that make up the All-American Mascot Team. Each mascot that is a part of the top 16 is pitted against one another each week; at the end of 12 weeks, the mascot with the most weekly wins becomes Capital One National Mascot of the Year.

To vote for Rocky to make it into the top 16, go to and select Ohio and The University of Toledo. You must vote before noon Monday, Dec. 17, and each person can vote multiple times as well as share their vote with others via Facebook and Twitter.

Be sure to vote for Rocky a few times and encourage your friends to do the same.
