Mascots have been seeded by a selection committee using a standard single-elimination bracket of four divisions with five rounds used for the competition. Seed rankings are based on the number of teams that a particular campus represents and then enrollment data was used to break any ties.

This year's SUNY Mascot Madness competition includes 43 SUNY campuses representing 650 athletic teams and over 360,000 students. In order to offer every campus an equal opportunity to become New York's favorite mascot, Round I and Round II, as they appear on the bracket, will be held simultaneously. This enables each participating campus to receive a full week of open voting before potentially moving on to the second round.

Competition Schedule:
Tuesday, March 11, 12 p.m. – Tuesday, March 18, 9 p.m.
Wednesday, March 19, 12 p.m. - Sunday, March 23, 4 p.m.
