The cool cougar has stolen the spotlight from the Cougarettes dance team at football games.
Inside Edition caught up with the squad, but Cosmo wouldn't utter a word because the mascot's human identity is a closely guarded secret.
“We are so excited and shocked,” dancer Shay Edwards said of the attention. “We didn’t know this would happen.”
“It is incredibly hard,” dancer Nicole Thorley said. “He has to have so much stamina and endurance because you kind of can’t breathe through the mask.”
