UC Irvine Anteaters

The UC Irvine Anteaters are the athletic teams of the University of California, Irvine (UCI). The Anteaters compete in the Big West Conference at the NCAA Division I level.

The UC Irvine Anteaters chose the nickname "Anteaters" in 1965, after a student vote. The other options on the ballot were unicorns, sea hawks, toros, roadrunners, and "none of these." The anteater was chosen because it was seen as a unique and memorable mascot that would represent the university's spirit and values.
