What may have looked like part of their routine, turned out to be poor sportsmanship on the side of a couple of mascots.
During the second quarter of Saturday's game between James Madison University and Coastal Carolina, a fight broke out between the JMU Duke Dog and Coastal Carolina's mascot.
It's still not known who exactly started the altercation.
But JMU spokesman Don Egle says no matter how the fight started, the school does not condone the unsportsman-like conduct of the person playing the Duke Dog.
Egle says that person will no longer appear as the university's mascot.
Several people wear the Duke Dog costume and they have not released who was acting as Duke Dog during this past weekend's game.
