Anyone who has ever played the EA Sports College Football video game series knows you can dial up a mascot game, where all of your players wear mascot costumes. Like Michigan State's Sparty vs. Oklahoma's Boomer, or USC's Trojan vs. Boston College's Baldwin the Eagle. Funny stuff.

But nothing beats real-life battle, such as the Ohio University bobcat vs. Ohio State's Brutus the Buckeye in September. Now we have UConn's Husky against the Princeton Tiger in a video produced by ESPN to promote UFC 124. Ultimate Fighting Championship star Georges St. Pierre trains them, then they use their new techniques on each other.

The best part is when they step into an Octagon at the end.
