CORVALLIS, ORE. (AP) - Oregon State Police say the oversized mascot head of ESPN college football analyst Lee Corso has been recovered, and two men have been cited on theft charges in the case.

The $5,000 prop used each week on ESPN’s “College Gameday” show was reported stolen in Corvallis on Saturday after the annual game between rivals Oregon and Oregon State.

An Oregon State employee found the prop Monday near his home in Harrisburg, nearly 30 miles from the OSU campus.

State Police said Monday that 26-year-old August Cuneo of Eugene and 25-year-old Alexander Westerberg of Harrisburg were cited Monday afternoon. Troopers say the two men had attended the University of Oregon.

Arrangements were being made to return the mascot head to ESPN.
