The steer formerly known as Sunrise Studly was not on the sidelines for last week’s 24-17 win over Oklahoma.

Bevo was diagnosed with a life-threatening condition Wednesday. It was then announced that the condition was bovine leukemia virus, and Bevo would retire immediately.

The search for Bevo’s replacement will begin immediately. The steer was on the sidelines for some of the biggest moments in the football team’s recent history, including the 2005 national title win over USC.
