WATCH: Butler’s mascot Butler Blue III chows down on Boilermaker cake before Purdue game

By Jesse Reed

Butler and Purdue are currently locking horns in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. But before the game, Butler Blue III, Butler’s adorable bulldog mascot, chowed down on a special “Boilermaker” cake that the team hoped would foreshadow a big win for the No. 10 seed.

That’s just too cute.

To this point, Butler is hanging tough, though Purdue has the edge with around seven minutes left in the game, up by eight points. If the Bulldogs do come back in this game to take down the No. 2 Boilermakers, then we’ll hearken back to this act of prophecy and remember it fondly for years to come.
