Petey, your lovable Golden Griffin mascot, has made the Final Four in this year’s College Court Report mascot contest. Petey has beaten Butler, North Florida, St. Louis and Hey Reb (UNLV) to reach the Final Four.

Petey is battling Sam the Minuteman of the University of Massachusetts in one semifinal, while Peter the Anteater of the University of California, Irvine is matched up against HH3 of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in the other Final Four battle.

To help move Petey onto the championship tilt, please follow the directions below:
