Boston College students, would you go to bat for Baldwin The Eagle? And what would you do, Michigan State, to ensure your beloved Sparty the Spartan stands the test of time? As college football season careens on, Capital One wants higher ed students far and wide to put their money where their mouths are and prove why their school’s mascot is supreme, and in the video below, CT and Knight of “Rivals II” demonstrate just how heated things could get.
No strangers to psychological warfare, the Challengers stare each other down — Knight in support of University Of Tennessee’s Smokey, and CT representing the Virginia Tech Hokie Bird. The tension is palpable, with each man seemingly prepared to play dirty. (It’s a good thing CT doesn’t share Jemmye’s weakness for ketchup, because his Bird would be toast!)
By demonstrating your loyalty on social media during the bracket competition, you can join in on the fight, too — posting a comment on Facebook or Twitter in reference to your school could earn your team 25 points, while uploading a photo or video could be worth a cool 100. Playoffs start in week 13, and by the 15th voting session, a winner will be crowned. If your favorite bear or bull’s knocked out before then, don’t say we didn’t warn you!
Head over to Capital One for more information, and start supporting your alma mater!
