When BYU faced Boise State in early October, Cosmo hit the field for a dance to “Rollie with a Dab of Ranch” by Ayo and Teo and now the viral video has garnered over 2.7 million views.
Back at it last night with our favorite dance partner Cosmo @cosmo_cougar Last year our dance with the mascot started a rash of "copy cats" but in our opinion Cosmo is the one & only!! ☝ Were you there??!! #reppintheY #coolestcollegemascotPosted by BYU Cougarettes on Saturday, October 7, 2017

The Oregon Duck was the first mascot to heed the call. He happened to do so when the University of Oregon faced off with BYU’s rival, University of Utah.
When Bleacher Report shared a tweet highlighting the dance-off between the two mascots and asked who has the better moves, other mascots decided to join the battle.

Kansas University’s Baby Jay took a second to boast as he danced along with Big Jay to Kendrick Lamar’s “Humble.”

The University of Minnesota’s Goldy Gopher opted for a classic from “Grease” for his dance-off soundtrack.

Brutus Buckeye from Ohio State University showed off his moves in yet another response.
Arizona’s State Sparky the Sun Devil claimed he is the only one who really knows how to “Walk It Out.”
This isn’t the first time Cosmo has gone viral for his dance moves. In October 2016, Cosmo joined the Cougarettes to dance to “Do It Like Me” by iAmDLOW.
