Texas Longhorns release teaser video for new mascot BEVO XV

New, 7 comments

There will soon be a new Longhorn on the UT sidelines.

While the Texas Longhorns continue to mourn their previous mascot, it appears the identity of BEVO XV will be revealed in the near future.

Silver Spurs is the student organization that handles BEVO. Ricky Brennes, the group's exeuctive director, says the Silver Spurs alumni association will pick BEVO XV, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

The previous mascot, BEVO XIV, passed away Oct. 16 after being diagnosed with Bovine Leukemia Virus.

BEVO XIV was two when he began his tenure in 2004 and witnessed back-to-back Rose Bowl wins, including the national championship victory over USC at the 2006 Rose Bowl, as well as 107 total victories.

The search for Sunrise Studly's replacement began immediately following BEVO XIV's passing and the new mascot will be on the sidelines for the 2016 football season opener Sept. 3 against Notre Dame.

The 100th anniversary of BEVO's first appearance at a Texas football game is next Thanksgiving.
