Baxter the Bearcat is top dog, so to speak, when it comes to state school mascots.

Binghamton University's biggest fan has won this year's SUNY Mascot Madness competition.

With hundreds of thousands of online votes cast, Baxter narrowly edged out SUNY Brockport's Ellsworth Eagle by just over 1 percent of the vote.

Baxter takes over from Hugo the Hawk from SUNY New Paltz who was the reigning champion.
