A lot of different sports have mascots, but no one seems to do them better than college football, which features everything from a live bulldog to a person in a tree costume.
Which mascot is best?
Sports Illustrated attempted to answer that question, ranking the best mascots in college football heading into the 2019 season.
Georgia’s “Uga” bulldog came in at No. 1.
Georgia’s line of pure white English bulldogs, now on No. 10, has been a staple of the mascot landscape since 1956. Though every new dog is added to the “Uga” line—Uga X is the latest—each also has its own unique name, is given a custom-made jersey and a varsity letter, and resides in an air-conditioned on-field doghouse. When his day comes, each Uga is buried in a marble vault alongside his fallen predecessors outside the football stadium.
It’s hard to argue with that. Who doesn’t like dogs?
Georgia is set to open the 2019 season on Aug. 31 at Vanderbilt. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. E.T.
