This is the beginning of a series of blogs that will highlight the origins of the mascots of the teams in the SEC. I will post a different team mascot on Wednesday of each week. Learn about the history behind the beloved mascots that grace the fields of the SEC collegiate football games.
My first blog will focus on my alma mater – the University of Georgia’s mascot – the Bulldog. It will be followed by the mascots of Auburn, Alabama, Ole Miss, LSU, Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky, South Carolina, Florida, Mississippi State, Texas A&M, and Mizzou.
A little known fact – UGA had a goat as its mascot in an early game against Auburn!! Learn more by following my mascot blog posts. Enjoy!
