Crash the Cougar

Team: California State University, San Marcos

Mascot Type:

Crash was first brought to life by Associated Students, Inc. in 2004 with a student vote and has served CSUSM as the campus life mascot for 13 years. With the inaugural season as a full NCAA member in 2017-2018, CSUSM officially moved Crash within Cougar Athletics. As part of that transition, students were consulted to create a design that embodies the athletics brand, unifies fan support and elevates the athleticism of the mascot.
