Webster's dictionary defines "mascot" as a person or thing that is supposed to bring good luck or that is used to symbolize a particular event or organization.

With a dozen teams in the Sun Belt, each school has its own take on a mascot in uniform.

However, changes are coming soon.

On July 1st, several schools are on the way out (UT-Arlington, Little Rock), while four schools will officially enter the SBC.

But for the next 5 weeks, the mascots of the Sun Belt look like this.

Eight animals, two Trojans, a Mountaineer, and a school in Louisiana who currently doesn't have a mascot in costume make up the group.

Cayenne is likely never coming back. The same can be said for Cajun Man and Cajun Chicken.
