University of Montana Grizzly mascot Monte squeaked by in last week's Capital One National Mascot Challenge.

The final percentage was 53% to 47% in favor of Monte.

That was last week. Now, we're into Week Five and Monte's competition gets more dangerous each time. This time, it's Sparty the Spartan from Michigan State.

Monte has taken the early lead (as of Tuesday evening), but that doesn't matter. The voting is now underway. Go to and get your vote in. There are other ways to rack up the points, too.

An idea - take a Griz Super Fan photo and enter it in our local contest and also submit it for more points in the Capital One Mascot Challenge.
