Vote for Zippy!

Zippy is up against the University of Minnesota mascot in the final round of the Capital One Mascot Challenge this week. Thanks to your strong support, Zippy is the only mascot to have made it this far undefeated, but that means little unless our beloved marsupial gets more votes than the gopher from Minnesota this week. You can vote daily for Zippy up to 9 a.m. Monday, Dec. 17 at capitalonebowl.com.

Unlike prior weeks in the challenge, running scores will not be posted. The winner will announced Tuesday, Jan. 1 during halftime of the Capital One Bowl. Kickoff is at 1 p.m.

Thanks for voting for Zippy!
