COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M's mascot Reveille missed Saturday's triple-overtime victory against Fresno State after she snapped at her cadet handler when he stepped on the collie's tail while running earlier in the week.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M's mascot Reveille missed Saturday's triple-overtime victory against Fresno State after she snapped at her cadet handler when he stepped on the collie's tail while running earlier in the week.

Dean Bresciani, vice president for student affairs, said Sunday that Reveille was quarantined at Texas A&M's veterinary school for a couple of days as part of a standard operating procedure but will be back on the sidelines for the Aggies' game with Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday.

Bresciani said the mascot corporal was not hurt but was embarrassed that he stepped on the 6-year-old dog's tail. Reveille VII instinctively whipped around and snapped at the handler when he did that, Bresciani said.

He said the mascot was "living a life of luxury" and missed a hot, humid afternoon football game.

Reveille is considered the highest-ranking member of the school's Corps of Cadets and stands at attention in her maroon coat during sporting events and other functions.
