Chat with WKU's 'Big Red'
Welcome to SportsNation! On Tuesday, we look ahead to Week 8 of the college football season with members of the Capital One All-America Mascot Team, who will compete each week to be named the Capital One Mascot of the Year, awarded on Jan. 1 at the Capital One Bowl on ESPN.
Each week of the season, the 16 mascots will face off in eight matchups with fan voting deciding the winner. At the end of the season, the mascots with the best win-loss records advance to the playoffs.
But, why mascots? Why not! They are the unappreciated glue. Plus, the winning mascot earns $20,000 for the school and the praise of the United Coalition of College Mascots.
This week we've got the Western Kentucky's "Big Red." Currently in 12th place, Big Red is first cousins with the Kool Aid guy, Grimace and the late Biggie Smalls. He also has some intriguing thoughts on why his mouth is always agape and which of his competition he'd most like to swallow whole.
Send your questions now and join "Big Red" Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET!
