IU Mascot???

Recommended Posts

Indiana University's football team had a mascot, named Ox from 1959-1965.  IU looked at replacing Ox with a buffalo, late in the 1960's.  That experiment was short lived.  One game, if memory serves correctly, as the buffalo broke loose, and ran rampant on the field at Memorial Stadium, before getting corralled.

Edit to add :  I forgot to mention that Ox was a bulldog.
