(Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)Texas’ 28-21 victory over Georgia in last night’s Sugar Bowl was almost overshadowed by what happened before the game, when the Longhorns’ live mascot Bevo almost got loose.Bevo turned what was supposed to be a cute mascot meeting between himself and Georga’s mascot Uga into a near miss for both the tiny bulldog and the dozens of media personnel down on the sideline.In case you missed it, here’s what happened.Bevo is not here for this mascot meeting. #HookEm pic.twitter.com/KXgaQzGm0W— Danny Davis (@aasdanny) January 2, 2019Nick Wagner, the photojournalist in the blue vest in this video, tweeted about his near-miss after the game.He also showed off a gnarly photo of his back, which survived its encounter with Bevo.Hi mom. I’m still alive. https://t.co/D8tcwLUlzv— Nick Wagner (@WagsPhoto) January 2, 2019Just come ice my back? pic.twitter.com/A0A1UQWpZd— Nick Wagner (@WagsPhoto) January 2, 2019Yikes. Thankfully, Wagner and everyone else in the area avoided serious injury.Note to Texas: be more careful about how you handle Bevo around large crowds from now on.last_img
