Big Dawg On Tour
Butler University mascot Butler Blue III (Trip) rides again as he takes to the open road in the Built Ford Tough Blue Mobile on the 2014 Big Dawgs Tour.
From January through March, the beloved Bulldog mascot will venture away from campus to spread some Butler cheer and follow the men’s basketball team as they take on new BIG EAST opponents in cities like Milwaukee, Chicago, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, New York, and more.
As this goodwill tour is about more than just basketball, Trip will be making many stops along his travels to visit alumni, corporate partners, schools, iconic landmarks, and America’s finest tourist attractions.
Once again, this furry ambassador will be live tweeting, blogging, posting, and tracking the entire adventure by posting highlights on Storify. Start with Twitter by searching the #BigDawgsTour hashtag and by following Trip (@ButlerBlue3) on Twitter as well.
