Brigham Young University’s Cosmo the Cougar and the Cougarettes are making national headlines with their latest performance during last week’s football game against Boise State.

BYU football left the game with a loss, but the halftime performance has since gone viral with several million views. Watch the video below:

And the crowd goes wild! Cosmo’s smooth moves have garnered attention from The Washington Post, USA Today, Deseret News, Yahoo Sports, Inside Edition, MSN and plenty more.

Cosmo joined the Cougarettes for their performance of “Rolex” by Ayo and Teo. According to CBS in Los Angeles (see Tweet below), the team has not released the identity of the person behind Cosmo’s moves. We only know that it’s a male senior at BYU. Here are just a few reactions from the Twittersphere that helped the video go viral:

CBS was all over this story

Bold statement from SB Nation

Bleacher Report is kind of a big deal

Dance Spirit Magazine chimed in

It’s been a rough season for BYU, but at least we’ve got Cosmo and the Cougarettes

Even the world of dance acknowledges Cosmo’s skill

CBS in L.A. even picked it up—no word yet on who is behind the Cosmo mask

And of course, Utah’s own KSL

But it’s not the first time Cosmo and the Cougarettes have put on a performance like this. Last year this video went viral with more than two million views:

Needless to say, Cosmo and the Cougarettes have some serious moves.
