Marshall's mascot to get makeover
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Marco the Marshall University mascot is getting another makeover, and the school is asking fans to decide on the bison's new look.
Voting will take place on Marshall's Facebook page through Aug. 10. Fans can choose to keep the mascot's current design or make limited or complete changes.
Marshall chief of staff Matt Turner says Marco's 5-year-old costume has undergone extensive wear and repairs, so it's time to replace it.
Turner says the new costume is expected to be finished in time for Marshall's home game on Oct. 5 against Texas-San Antonio.
