Bevo XIII, longest-tenured Longhorns mascot, dies
AUSTIN, Texas -- Bevo XIII, the longest-tenured mascot in Texas Longhorns history, has 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 XIV would follow him around."
Bevo XIII, 22, was on the Texas sideline for 16 seasons, starting in 1988.
