CollegesNicknames- The Felines
Today's list features schools with feline nicknames; they include Princeton University, Montana State and Vermont (all three are pictured here).
One team that is on this list, the Kentucky Wildcats are virtually assured of a number-one seed in the NCAA torunament.
Since we like to make fun of Provo, Utah (it is presumably the most politically conservative place in America), we thought we'd include the Brigham Young Cougars as a goodwill gesture.
Three of these schools, Penn State, Pitt and Lafayette are in Pennsylvania.
Here are the schools:
1. BYU Cougars, West Coast Conference, Provo, Utah
2. Clemson Tigers, ACC, Clemson, SC
3. Columbia Lions, Ivy, New York, New York
4. High Point University Panthers, Big South, High Point, NC
5. Idaho State Bengals, Big Sky, Pocatello, Ida.
6. Kentucky Wildcats, SEC, Lexington, Ky.
7. Lafayette Leopards, Patriot, Easton, Pa.
8. Montana State Bobcats, Big Sky, Bozeman, Mont.
9. Penn State Nittany Lions, Big Ten, State College, Pa.
10. Pitt Panthers, Big East, Pittsburgh, Pa.
11. Priceton Tigers, Ivy, Princeton, NJ
12. Vermont Catamounts, America East, Burlington, Vt.
