If Big Blue were to win the C-USA mascot challenge, it wouldn't be his first foray into the national limelight. In 2010, Big Blue received a $20,000 check on behalf of the university for winning the 2010 Capital One Mascot of the Year competition.

In that competition, Big Blue garnered more than 2 million votes to defeat 15 other mascots.
