If the whole football thing doesn't work out, Ben Roethlisberger could make a career change and become a college mascot. The Steelers quarterback, who is recovering from surgery for an elbow injury, attended the Kansas-West Virginia men's college basketball game Wednesday night.

Prior to the contest, Roethlisberger, sitting courtside in Morgantown, tried on the cap of Mountaineer, West Virginia's mascot.

Roethlisberger, who's is sporting a beard, looked like he could step right in and takeover the mascot duties. 

Here's Big Ben looking like a Mountain Man trying on the cap for a photo op with Mountaineer.

Kansas scored the final nine points to beat West Virginia 58-49, as reported by the Associated Press.
