The Texas Longhorns took down the Georgia Bulldogs in Tuesday night’s Sugar Bowl, but it was a pre-game brawl between the two sides’ beloved mascots that stole the show.
Handlers attempted to wrangle Texas’ “Bevo” – a three-year-old, 1,800-pound steer with 58-inch horns – into a photo op with Georgia’s live Bulldog “Uga” on the sideline before kickoff. But instead of posing for the photo, Bevo charged out of his pen and nearly killed Uga and a number of innocent bystanders in the process.
Here’s the full video of the showdown:
