90th Year of the Bobcats video

In 1923, the Athletic Advisory Board selected the Bobcat as the OHIO mascot because of the animal’s “inclination and ability to put up good scrap.” Our Bobcats certainly have done that this year, earning their ninth-straight bowl eligibility. Watch the video about the history of OHIO's mascot. Register for the Bobcat Bash on Dec. 19. to celebrate with fellow alumni before OHIO takes on Appalachian State for the Camellia Bowl in Montgomery Alabama.

Send us your OHIO memorabilia for a special alumni project. Email mcfaddev@ohio.edu for details.
