If the national championship in football didn't quite go your way, maybe these national championships will.
The WSU Cheer team, The Crimson Girls and Butch are getting ready to head to Florida for some national championships of their own. The Crimson Girls and the cheer team will compete in the (take a deep breath everybody) "Universal Cheerleaders Association and Universal Dancers Association College Cheerleading and Dance Team National Championships" starting on Friday in Orlando. Butch, meanwhile, will also be at Disney's Wide World of Sports this weekend for the Mascot National Championship.
You can watch all the action on Friday on ESPN3. Butch will take the stage at 5:56 PT. He'll be taking on some huge competition like Goldy Gopher, Aubie, Brutus Buckeye and Chip. Despite the stiff competition, this won't get in the way of the blossoming friendship between Butch and Chip.
The Crimson Girls and cheer squad will each take the stage Saturday on ESPN3. The Crimson Girls at 9:48 AM and the cheer team will be up at 4:09. If they advance, the final rounds will air on an ESPN TV network to be determined in March or April.
