There are just a few mascots in college football that are bigger than life.
Mike the Tiger at LSU. UGA at Georgia. Bevo at Texas.
But maybe the biggest of the mascots rolled into town. Ralphie IV, Colorado's 1,200-pound mascot, got her first look at Independence Stadium today. Her calendar also includes a visit to the Pep Rally tonight at the Louisiana Boardwalk.
Ralphie seemed to be in good spirits getting her picture taken this morning at the stadium. Her handlers put the over/under at how many people can pet her and like at 70 before she becomes annoyed.
She'll certainly bring some star-power to the game as she runs out with the Colorado team tomorrow night before the 32nd PetroSun Independence Bowl.
