Don’t mess with Texas.
On Tuesday, the phrase became literal when Texas Longhorns mascot Bevo, the nearly four-year-old steer formerly known as Sunrise Spur, caused a commotion on the field of the Allstate Sugar Bowl when he charged at Georgia Bulldogs mascot UGA during an attempted photo opportunity:

There are always concerns about controlling a steer the size of Bevo XV and he certainly proved a little bit frisky during a pregame introduction this season, but the mascot largely seemed low key in game environments until his Tuesday outburst.
Fortunately, no one appeared to get hurt during the short-lived fracas, including UGA.
