The Bobcats compete in the Mid-American Conference (MAC) where they are the only remaining chartered member. In 2006 there was a campus-wide contest to give the unnamed Bobcat mascot a name. Hence where the name Rufus the Bobcat was born. Rufus is derived from the scientific name of the North American bobcat and ironically is also the name of one of the original trustees of the university, Rufus Putnam. One of the most exciting sports moments in Bobcat history was the Men’s Basketball team making a Sweet Sixteen appearance in 2012 for the first time since 1964.
