Tulsa to trot out dog as new sideline mascot

State briefs

TULSA — The University of Tulsa has a new fuzzy mascot that reflects its Golden Hurricane nickname.

It’s not a student in a costume but a golden retriever, who will be roaming the football sidelines starting with the Sept. 7 home opener against Colorado State.

Goldie is nearly five months old and the Tulsa World reports she’ll make her first public appearance on Aug. 21 at a Tulsa Drillers baseball game. ONEOK Field has a “Bark in the Park” promotion that day.

Goldie will sniff her way around pre-game tailgate parties and serve as a TU ambassador at other functions, too.

She’s the first live mascot the school has had in decades.
