Brutus Buckeye v. Rufus the Bobcat

Sept. 18, 2010

The fur was flying in Columbus, Ohio, before the kickoff of the Ohio State-Ohio University football game. Ohio's mascot, Rufus, stalked Brutus Buckeye into the end zone, where he proceeded to punch the unsuspecting mascot several times in the head. It was later revealed that the man inside Rufus was not even enrolled at Ohio University.

Inspired by this unique form of mascot mayhem, SI.com presents other costumed clashes from years past.
