A national competition designed after the Capital One Mascot Challenge has launched Vic the V-Hawk of Viterbo University into the national spotlight.
Cody Bohl in the Viterbo Athletic Department says it shows the power of social media.
"The most likes on a Facebook picture was probably around 300," Bohl said. "So, getting into the 1,000 likes and 993 retweets is incredible. Our school isn't that big."
You'll have a chance to move Vic the V-Hawk onto the next round of national voting. Bohl says the rules for that round will be announced in the next week.
