The Battle to Name New York's Favorite College Mascot

SUNY's 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. 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 5 rounds. 

Last year, Red from SUNY Oneonta was declared the winner. This year, it's anybody's game. For all the variety in our creative characters, there’s one thing they all have in common – their spirit for their campus communities and the SUNY family.

Meet the mascots participating in 2022 SUNY Mascot Madness.
