Texas fans turn dog into Bevo in place of sick mascot

The Texas Longhorns have looked pretty miserable on the field this season. On Saturday, they got a much-needed win as they upset the then tenth-ranked Oklahoma Sooners in the annual Red River Rivalry game.

The fans were in full force for the game, but one part of the Texas team that wasn’t able to make the game was Bevo, Texas’s two-ton live Longhorn mascot due to sickness.

According to Complex, fans made due with what they could and brought a much smaller version of Bevo by throwing a foam set of horns on a dog.


Bevo dog might have brought this team the luck they needed. The Longhorns dominated for most of the game and won 24-17, possibly saving their season and head coach Charlie Strong’s job.

If the Longhorns want to avoid being embarrassed and missing a bowl game for the second time in four years, they will need all the luck they can get for the next two months.
