WKU's Big Red To Make A Pair Of Television Appearances Friday

Bowling Green, Ky. — Western Kentucky University mascot Big Red will appear on a pair of television morning shows Friday as part of the campaign for Capital One National Mascot of the Year.

Big Red and the other 11 finalists will be on CBS’s “The Early Show” during the 7 a.m. (CST) hour, then will move to the “Tony Danza Show” on NBC — viewers need to check their local listings for latter broadcast, which airs in syndication.

Just three weeks remain in the voting for the Mascot of the Year. Big Red — a member of the Capital One All-America Mascot Team each of the last three years — is currently tied for fifth in the standings with a 3-4 record in weekly match-ups with the other finalists, despite leading the overall popular vote by more than 6,000 ballots.

Voting for the Capital One National Mascot of the Year is done on-line at www.capitalonebowl.com.
