Bevo XIII, former Texas mascot, dies

Associated Press

AUSTIN -- Bevo XIII, the longest-tenured mascot in Texas Longhorn history, is gone to the big ranch in the sky.

The retired mascot died Monday on the private ranch where he lived with his successor, Bevo XIV, the Silver Spurs spirit club announced Tuesday.

"They would hang out together," said former Bevo XIII handler Ricky Brennes. "Bevo fourteen would follow him around."

Bevo XIII, 22, was on the Texas sideline for 16 seasons, starting in 1988.

During his tenure, the Longhorns had three head coaches and won a Big 12 football title, and Ricky Williams won the Heisman Trophy. Bevo XIII retired before the 2004 season.

He had reached his life expectancy and had trouble standing. His handlers thought he would have to be put down before his heart finally gave out, Brennes said.

Brennes noted he lived long enough to see the Longhorns beat rival Oklahoma 28-10 on Saturday.

According to the Silver Spurs, the Longhorn mascot "represents courage, fighting ability, nerve, lust of combat, efficiency in deadly encounters and the holy spirit of 'Never Say Die."'

Bevo XIII, whose actual name was Sunrise Express, was a world champion steer at 3 years old before he became the Texas mascot.

In 2000, then-freshman wide receiver Roy Williams caught a long pass against Oklahoma State and thought about leaping on the 1,900-pound steer for a spectacular highlight. He thought better of it when he got a close-up look at the horns that measured 5-feet-7 inches tip to tip.

Bevo is eating the best hay he has ever had in the prettiest field he has ever seen, and the Longhorns win every Saturday.

So along Bevo.

R.I.P.

Daily Texan story

Quote:
Raised on Sunrise Ranch, Sunrise Express became a national champion steer at age 3 before taking the role of Bevo XIII. In his heyday, Bevo weighed almost 2,000 pounds and boasted horns spanning longer than 5 feet.

Unlike the more ornery Bevo XII, Bevo XIII was given the moniker Gentleman Bevo, and was docile enough for visits to area elementary schools.

In spite of my poor humor, that steer probably lived a better/more comfortable life than most of us will lol

You compete for a few years, then attend football games SIDELINE for a few years, then retire to an exclusive ranch, all the while being waited on hand and foot!

RIP BEVO XIII: You will be missed.
