Big Red – Western Kentucky Hilltoppers

The Hilltoppers named this…uh…this, guy (?) their mascot in the fall of 1979.

Big Red looks like nothing else on Earth – he is just an oversized, fat, furry, red blob.  He has appeared in multiple mascot competitions (and was named to the Capital One All-America Mascot Teams from 2002-2004) as well as ESPN commercials and the 25,000th SportsCenter.

He is arguably the most recognizable thing about WKU sports, and that’s just for looking weird.
