This week's list topic is all about the color of game day, which is a ripe subject for this time of year since there isn't much going on other than some coaches keeping their fingers crossed as they await word about whether some key recruits become academically cleared to play.

So today it's Best Mascot. I'm combining it to include both the live and costumed varieties, and obviously there is plenty to choose from.

The only parameter is I'm keeping it to Division I-A schools. Apologies to Yale's Handsome Dan.
