Everyone’s favorite mascot — Stony Brook University’s Wolfie — will look to defend his title as SUNY Mascot Madness champion when the statewide voting competition begins on March 15.
Mascot Madness is the annual competition that brings SUNY mascots together in a competition to find out who the fans feel is the best in all of New York.
Last year, Wolfie rolled through the first four rounds of competition and faced off against Oakie, from the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, in the final round. Wolfie won the title of SUNY Mascot Ambassador handily, 57.75 percent to 42.25 percent.
Now in its 10th year, the tournament continues to grow in its size and reach. As is customary, and similar to the annual NCAA March Madness basketball tournament, Mascot Madness is broken down into five rounds:
- Round 1 = March 15 (12 pm) – March 17 (4 pm)
- Round 2 = March 20 (12 pm) – March 22 (4 pm)
- Round 3 = March 24 (12 pm) – March 28 (4 pm)
- Semifinals/Final Four = March 29 (12 pm) – March 31 (4 pm)
- Finals = April 4 (12 pm) – April 6 (4 pm)
Wolfie opens this year’s competition with a first-round showdown against Mo the Mustang from SUNY Morrisville.
