LENA THE HYENA - College Mascot?

You're probably familiar with the saga of Lena the Hyena - how back in 1946, Al Capp announced a contest for his readers to depict "the ugliest woman in the world," and persuaded Frank Sinatra, Salvador Dali and Boris Karloff to serve as judges. 

BUT! Did you know Lena also once pranced around on the field of a college football game? I saw her the other day in an episode of the ESPN documentary "The American Game." The segment was devoted to college mascots. Was Lena an official mascot? What team was she rooting for? ESPN didn't say. Can you?

I did a large ceramic sculpture of Basil being swallowed by Lena.
