TAMPA, Fla. (Sept. 6, 2013) – Hanging out on the set, behind the scenes with the big star Rocky the Bull as Capital One filmed “Bull in A China Shop,” Rocky stole the show. The production crew transformed a storefront in Hyde Park Village in Tampa into a china shop for the shoot.

The Capital One Mascot Challenge is underway with USF's own Rocky the Bull as a finalist.

A total of 16 mascots have been selected for the challenge, and fans can show their school spirit by voting for their own at the official Capital One website. Mascots are paired in groups of two for head-to-head matchups each week in a competition that features weekly winners.

Mascots with the most wins at the end of the regular season will move on to the playoff voting phase, and the overall winner will be awarded $20,000. The USF Rocky Program will receive $5,000 just for participating.

Fans can vote each day for their favorite mascot all the way up to the regular season deadline (Nov. 24 at 11:59 a.m.). You can check Rocky's progress by heading over to CapitalOneBowl.com and the official Capital One Facebook page at the end of each weekly voting period.

Throughout the competition be sure to use #CapitalOneBull on Twitter and follow @USFAthletics and @RockyTheUSFBull for updates. Follow Rocky on Facebook at Facebook.com/RockytheBull.
