About Cosmo the Cougar

Cosmo has had a history for decades of doing impressive stunts that wow fans around the country and the world for that matter.

In 2017, Cosmo became a viral sensation with a dance to Ayo & Teo’s “Rolex” that was performed alongside the BYU’s National Champion dance squad “Cougarettes.” The viral moment has garnered more than seven million views.

Since then, Cosmo’s viral moments have continued, highlighted by an incredible dunk from behind the three-point line during a BYU basketball game in the 2021-22 season.

At 2023 Big 12 Football Media Days, the mascot sported a pair of custom Nike shoes. During the two-day event, Cosmo pulled off an awesome swing dance with a cheerleader from Oklahoma State.

After Big 12 Media Days, the conference held a special basketball clinic for youth at New York’s Rucker Park. One of the event’s sponsors, Hard Rock Hotels, created unique cocktail drinks named after the league’s teams. The BYU mascot had a “Cosmo-politan” drink named after him.

Cosmo’s offseason doesn’t seem to be slowing down ahead of the Cougars’ football opener at home against Sam Houston on September 2.
