Mike the Tiger will tangle with another tiger mascot on Saturday in Tiger Stadium. But only one can be No. 1.

The official website of the NCAA on Wednesday released a “High Five” countdown of the best “friendly and fierce” Tiger mascots in college sports. Let’s just say Mike stood up well against the competition.

Mobile/tablet users see the video here.

Mike’s been on a roll of late, appearing with dozens of other college mascots recently in Brad Paisley’s “Country Nation” music video. The live version also attended LSU’s almost-game against McNeese State, touring the stadium in his mobile trailer for the first time since 2013.

Both the live Mike and the costumed Mike are fan favorites, and getting a picture with either is high on the to-do list for Tiger fans.
