PROVO, Utah – BYU mascot Cosmo always delivers. Even on nights when the teams he cheers for do not.

During the first half of BYU basketball’s loss to Utah Valley on December 7, Cosmo stepped out onto the Marriott Center for his latest stunt. It was an upgraded version of a previous viral stunt from the furry mascot.

BYU mascot Cosmo pulls out five rows of tables

During BYU football’s game against Utah State in September, Cosmo did pushups while moving up three rows of stacked tables.

On Wednesday, Cosmo showed off his strength again by leveling up five rows of tables.

If fans are questioning BYU’s ability to win in the future in the Big 12 Conference. They can rest on the fact that they have the best mascot in their future league home.

Cosmo himself tweeted, “may be a cougar, but I got that dawg in me.”

National media outlets such as Yahoo! Sports and Bleacher Report have already picked up Cosmo’s latest display of strength.

Leading up to the game, Cosmo took stunt recommendations from members of the BYU basketball team. However, he ultimately didn’t take any of their suggestions, as he opted for an enhanced version of the classic table pushups stunt.

But some of the ideas were good. Most notably, BYU guard Trey Stewart pitched an idea for Cosmo to do a stunt that included jumping over the Prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. So maybe that’s in Cosmo’s bag of tricks in the future.

BYU basketball coach Mark Pope asked Cosmo to take out all three referees on one run.

Cosmo’s next chance for a stunt is next Wednesday when BYU hosts Western Oregon on December 15. Then two days later, BYU hosts rival Utah at the Marriott Center.
