There are so many iconic representatives across the country, we at The Tylt want to know who you think is the best mascot in the nation. In this matchup, we have Washington's Dubs, representing the best of the live mascots, and Ohio State's Brutus, who won the costumed mascot group. Who is the best mascot in the country? 🐶🌰

Best college mascot: Dubs or Brutus?

Whether it's running out with the team, interacting with the crowd or making appearances in the community, college mascots are the lovable representatives of universities that no one can get enough of. Players might disappoint, coaches may be subpar, but mascots are always there to pick you up.

In the spirit of the upcoming March Madness, we at The Tylt want to know who the best mascot in the country is! One side of the bracket is exclusively live mascots, while the other is costumed symbols of their respective universities. 

Dubs is a good boy who conquered LSU's Mike the Tiger and Georgia's Uga in the furry region of the bracket to make it to the final round. Brutus held off a tag team from Florida's Albert and Alberta Gator in the first round. He then beat Wisconsin's Bucky Badger to make it to the national championship.

Who should be the champion of the mascots?

There are plenty of doggo mascots in college football, but there aren't any who are more handsome than the huskie in the Pacific Northwest.

Dubs stalks the sidelines at the University of Washington proudly and struts with the confidence of a puppy who knows he's boss—and for good reason. Dubs II survived a 90-puppy pool in order to be the 14th live mascot in Washington's history.

Isn't he a good boy?

It's a tough hang to be represented by a nut, but Brutus makes it look good.

The rambunctious Buckeye has made appearances with College Gameday and has over 30 statues all over Ohio State. He also has the largest bust in the Mascot Hall of Fame and is a former Universal Cheerleaders Association Division I College Mascot National Champion.

A resume like that is impossible to top.
