NORMAN, Okla. (AP) What's in a name?

If the name is “Sooner,” it could mean bragging rights for the best team mascot in the nation.

Oklahoma's mascot has been named to the 5th annual Capital One All-America Mascot Team.

The team's made up of the nation's best mascots. Sooner was the only mascot to make the team from the Big 12 Conference.

Other mascots on the All-America team are “The Bird” from the Air Force Academy, “Big Red” from Western Kentucky University and “Buzz” from Georgia Tech.
