The Big Ten mascots always seem to have the best time when they come to Chicago for the Big Ten Football Media Day and Kickoff Luncheon, and this year was no exception. Bucky, Brutus, Herky, Sparty, Herbie, and Purdue Pete stopped by "Good Day Chicago" and took over the local Fox affiliate's TV newsroom during BTN's appearance to promote Saturday's BTN Big10K race downtown.

This comes on the heels of a recent music video back-and-forth over the summer. Read all of the details over here. Also, way back in 2009, a few mascots mingled at the reception as only they could. Our cameras caught the action.
