His personality totally comes through on his tweets. If you have ever been to a football or basketball game, his antics are unique. He thrives on Dutch Bros and eats Gummy Bears and also loves the opportunity to take photos with kids and adults alike.

The Duck had some competition from Brutus Buckeye from Ohio State(2nd) and
Sparty(Michigan State(3rd). Oregon’s mascot was the only Pac-12 that made the list.

Around campus, the Oregon Duck has been seen at events ranging from parties at the Campus Bookstore, to Men’s and Women’s Basketball games, and of course Football games. He will be roaming the sidelines at the Annual Spring Game next weekend.
