COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Awesome Eagle is in the race, and is currently either first, second or third in the voting in the OVC Mascot Challenge, presented by Delta Dental. Fans can log on and vote for their favorite mascot, and three OVC characters are waging a battle for the lead.

Awesome Eagle was atop the list at the end of the day Monday, but by Tuesday morning had slipped to third behind Belmont and Murray State. By mid-morning Tuesday, Awesome had climbed back to second place.

In short, Awesome Eagle needs the support of Tennessee Tech fans with their vote. Fans can vote each day, and the balloting will run through March 7, so it will take a sustained, concerted effort.

The winner of the challenge will receive a $1,000 donation to the school's general scholarship fund, so there's more to this voting than a simple popularity contest. Every vote toward a victory by Awesome Eagle will help benefit Tennessee Tech financially.

So log on and vote. And vote again. And again. And get your Facebook friends to vote. And your co-workers, classmates and real-life, face-to-face friends.

Awesome would certainly do the same for you!
