The Cotton Bowl found a unique use of Goodyear tires.
With Goodyear the sponsor of the Cotton Bowl, an artist used Goodyear tires to make sculptures of both Wisconsin’s and Western Michigan’s mascots.
ESPN’s Darren Rovell reports Goodyear commissioned Blake McFarland to make the sculptures. The bowl game’s Twitter account says the sculptures needed more than 300 hours of work.
Even when made out of tires, Bucky has a snarl.
