Green Wave tire mascot will be a souvenir of historic Cotton Bowl win

In honor of the 87th Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic football game, a tire artist at Goodyear created a huge Angry Wave mascot out of Goodyear tires. The 6-foot-plus mascot was displayed at this week’s game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Goodyear has donated the commemorative artwork to Tulane. It will arrive on campus in several weeks.

Goodyear tire art has been a Cotton Bowl tradition since 2016. Artist Blake McFarland handcrafted this year’s mascots from more than 300 tires over just 16 days.

Tulane won the Cotton Bowl Classic game 46-45 over USC.
