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 seventh 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. This year, we named a new, first-time winner.

Congratulations to Columbia-Greene Community College's Rip Van Winkle on winning the 2019 SUNY Mascot Madness competition!
