In the season opener against Notre Dame, Texas fans can expect to see lots of burnt orange, Hook ‘Em hand signs and possibly a mock turtleneck from Coach Strong — but one thing will be missing: Bevo.
The University’s 2,000 pound sideline icon cannot make the trip to South Bend, Indiana, on Sept. 5 because of a no live-mascot policy in Notre Dame’s stadium.
Earlier today, the official Twitter account for Bevo XIV made the announcement the Longhorn would not be making the trip.
Although one special Longhorn can’t make it — Texas’ costumed mascot, Hook ‘Em, will be in the stadium on game day.
The 2015 season kickoff is scheduled for Sept. 5 at 6:30 pm and will be aired on NBC.
