UNR's mascot, Wolfie, Jr., recently won the Capital One Mascot Challenge... and the cool $20,000 check that comes along with it.  So what makes a great mascot?  Are one-armed pushups and handsprings enough?  How do you rev up a crowd?  And how hard is it to get chosen in the first place?  We talk to the two guys who play UNR's "Wolfie, Jr." and UNLV's "Hey Reb."
Ian Holmes, UNR's "Wolfie, Jr."
