BYU's mascot Cosmo leads his team during a race through the corn maze

BYU's mascot is a lovable cougar known as "Cosmo."    The origin of "Cougar" as the BYU nickname goes all the way back to the early 1920's.    Former coach Eugene L. Roberts chose the mascot, and the name stuck.    The Cougars even had live cats roaming the sidelines until the 1940's, and they made special appearances for big games up until the 1960's.
