In the 1920's Syracuse University football had a four-footed mascot, Vita the Goat. Vita made appearances at the games in Archbold Stadium, often dressed for the occasion wearing signage such as "Beat Colgate". The 1925 Onondagan notes that the goat was "held in leash by freshman guardians" during the games. Courtesy Syracuse University Archives.

Photograph of Alpha Tau Omega cannon explosion at the 1960 SU vs. Penn State game. A gift from a 1922 alumnus, the cannon was fired for every SU touchdown & every winning home game. At this game, the ATO brothers fired a shot, but a spark fell into a suitcase full of gunpowder behind the cannon. Click for full story! Photograph by Gordon Allen, '61, G'82.
