AUSTIN, Texas — The University of Texas is celebrating the birthday of their very own mascot.
Bevo XV, who became the Texas Longhorns' mascot in 2016, turned 4 years old Thursday.
Bevo's current owner Betty Baker told KVUE he will be given 'a little extra hay' for his birthday.
Fun fact: Bevo XV is the youngest mascot in UT history!
Texas' mascot made its first appearance at UT in 1916 at the annual Thanksgiving rivalry between the Texas Longhorns and Texas A&M Aggies. Since then, 15 steers have had the privilege of representing UT.
