Everyone's favorite Nut just got a little more love.
Brutus Buckeye has won the Universal Cheerleader's Association D1A Mascot National Championship!
Brutus came in as the top seed and based on his video application, it is easy to see why.
Brutus ran the show, taking home the Ohio State's first national championship of 2019. He took home third place last year, with Golden Gophy from Minnesota winning it all in 2018.
UCA grades the mascot performances on five factors: crowd appeal & crowd interaction, creativity, animation/enthusiasm, prop usage, and overall impression.
