Former Austin American-Statesman photographer Nick Wagner is suing the handlers and owners of Bevo XV for negligence after the Texas Longhorns mascot made a matador-like pass at him prior to the 2019 Sugar Bowl, in which Texas beat the Georgia Bulldogs.

Yep. You remember the incident.

Per the Statesman’s report, Wagner is seeking between $200,000 and $1 million in damages. He claims Bevo caused him “permanent injuries,” according to the lawsuit.

Wagner left the Statesman in May, the Statesman reports.

  • Texas head coach Tom Herman plans to take advantage of the news transfer rule, per the Dallas Morning News. “I think a one-time dump of this rule in everybody’s lap in January without any other rules being adjusted or adapted because of that, I think that can lead to some very serious issues,” Herman said during Monday’s Big 12 teleconference. “If we can figure out how to manage our rosters legally and equitably, I think anything that allows student-athletes to feel some sense of freedom and the ability to make choices that are best for them. … We’ve just got to make sure it’s a good thing for everybody.”
