It’s not often that a 10 seed being beaten by a 6 seed is an upset, but when WSU loses an online poll it’s so rare that it has to be. In Sirius XM’s College Sports Mascot Bracket (pitting the best mascots in the country against each other March Madness style) Butch T. Cougar lost a heartbreaker last night to Oklahoma’s Boomer Sooner 51-49.

Butch had taken out the hated Harry Husky in the first round before winning a last second vote against West Virginia in round two.

Butch previously was named Capital One’s college mascot of the year in 2006, so a 10 seed was probably low balling our beloved Butch. Once again he had a good run on the national stage. It’s been a nice week for Butch who also gave us this amazing Tiger King photoshop.
